Protect children from toxic air

96 of 100 signatures

We need to take urgent action to protect children from the dangers of air pollution.

Air pollution has an enormous impact on children's health. It can affect their lung development, brain development, and their general health. 

Evidence from Client Earth in 2018 shows that 9 schools in Cardiff are near roads where the level of pollution is dangerous and has an adverse affect on children's health. Cardiff Council has been too slow to act to clean up the air we breathe. A simple solution would be to take action against idling outside schools. Anti-idling zones would give Cardiff Council the powers to issue a Fixed Penalty Notice to idlers.

We the undersigned call on Cardiff Council to request the necessary powers from Welsh Government to ban idling outside schools to clean up the air children breathe.
