Council workers holding anti-idling placards at Bell Green

Is this good use of council funds? Personally I’m happy to see something being done about idling cars. Pet peeve.

I think we are all happy to see something done about idling cars, obviously. The question is first whether standing waving a placard will do anything at all and second whether that could remotely offset the massive additional pollution cause by the rapid over- development and complete lack of planning of Bell Green and its awful road system. I think many residents’ pet peeve may well be the fact air pollution here is twice the European safe limit according to the Council itself and that the primary school is in the top 50 most air-polluted schools in the country!
