Default Another pollution from motor vehicles warning.

The TV news this morning showed the appalling smog over London and
people with breathing difficulties were advised to stay indoors.
Doesn't it seem strange though that individuals are actually allowed
to cause such harm to others with their polluting motor vehicles and
why is there no legal redress to this?

http://airtext.info shows how the pollution is distributed over London
this morning.

There *are* fines applicable, although the culprits will get away with
it and we the taxpayer will end up picking up the tab.

"Monitoring in Marylebone Road, central London, showed that the number
of days on which polluting particles known as PM10s were elevated was
higher than the EU maximum. Britain has been given until June to meet
standards before it risks being fined".

What "tab"?

The "argument" (such as it is) for the ferocious taxation of fuel usually
relies upon the notion that some of it is imposed in return for the alleged
"externalities" of motor vehicle use (though no mention is ever made of the
masive societal benefits accruing from ease of travel).

You'd like to see vehicle-users pay twice (if, indeed, as few times as that),
would you?

"Monitoring in Marylebone Road, central London, showed that the number
of days on which polluting particles known as PM10s were elevated was
higher than the EU maximum. Britain has been given until June to meet
standards before it risks being fined".


Easiest way of reducing that effect in the Marylebone Road would be to stop
channelling the area's traffic along that particular street, by abolishing
the "Congestion" Tax.

Unfortunately the pollution is nation wide and there is no escape from
it. Probably staying at home is only a tokenistic remedy but obviously
the less you breathe and don't exercise the less you will be poisoned.

Fine here in Kent. Clear as a bell.

I suggest you stop breathing immediately.

Typically anecdotal. So the government should stop worrying people I
suppose, just because you think everything is OK?

Toxic ozone from cars is invisible. Also http://www.airtext.info/
shows 'High' pollution in N. Kent and the government has issued
pollution warnings for the whole of the country. Besides, you have no
way of escaping from your own noxious pollution.

Probably staying at home is only a tokenistic remedy but obviously
the less you breathe and don't exercise the less you will be poisoned.

Why should I and others be made to suffer just because people like you
want to drive filthy cars which contribute to illegally high
emissions? Why is there no legal redress against your harmful
polluting?
