So they have issued the pollution figures for last year and they are worse than previous years. They make a rather large brouhaha about the issues but neglect to mention that 95% of the so called pollution zones named all have one things in common.

Bus lanes, Traffic Calming, Speed Bumps and 20mph speed limits on major trunk roads.
They have created congestion claiming it is for safety, They have pushed 2 lanes of traffic into a single lane to leave a bus lane empty which in turn by its very nature creates stationary traffic. They have badly thought out light sequences where nothing seems joined up and lots of driving is done in lower gears with stop and start the norm. Engines do not run efficiently with stop and start and electric is not really a viable option for now.

What can they do to solve the issue Well I am not paid for that answer but perhaps a wee cull of too many monkeys taking too much money from the public purse who cannot speak to each other could very well be the answer.

I think the long forgotten idea was to discourage people driving in these areas but it just doesn't work like that.... public transport sucks and is dirty and manky so people would rather sit in their own cars and suffer the slow moving traffic
