Today is Clean Air Day, the UK's largest air pollution campaign.
Clean Air Day's focus this year is the impact that pollution can have on mental health. According to the action for clean air website, every year, air pollution causes up to 36,000 deaths in the UK.
The World Health Organisation and the UK Government recognise that air pollution is the largest environmental health risk we face today.
#KTL take’s the anti-idling pledge.
What is idling a car engine? It is leaving a vehicle's engine running while the vehicle is not in motion. This happens while in traffic, but in most situations, idling is not necessary and is harmful to health and the environment.
Will you join us in pledging to not idle your car engine this Clean Air Day?
A couple of tips to reduce idling:
Think Two Minutes: try to consider how long you are going to be stationary in traffic. The RAC recommends that motorists turn off their engines if they don’t think they’ll move for around two minutes.
Stop-Start System: many modern vehicles have ‘stop-start’ systems fitted that automatically switch off the engine when the vehicle is stationary and restart it as soon as the accelerator is pressed.
