Schools Should have No-Idle Zones to Prevent Air Pollution

A new set of recommendations made by Public Health England (PHE) highlights the need to have 'no-idling zones' to prevent air pollution.

Local authorities should enforce 'no idling zones' to prevent the rise of air pollution in sensitive areas such as schools, hospitals and care homes. Air pollution is taking a huge toll on the health of citizens with close to 36000 deaths reported a year. The report highlights the importance of clean public transport, more use of footpath and cycle paths, electric cars with provision for more charging points.

In Indian schools also, air pollution levels may be higher in morning and evening as more vehicles come to drop and pickup students. More reliance on school buses, bicycles and public transport may help reduce air pollution leading to better quality of life for our kids.
