Ban Cars Near All Schools

Interesting idea and some persuasive arguments for doing so; could it happen here too? https://www.bbc.com/...

Of course if it happens in the UK or anywhere the idea will spread quickly as Governments agencies will be concerned about their liability and risk of civil damages action if they don't follow suit knowing the risks to children.

Maybe we should do something to encourage (force) people to put their kids on a bus to and from school.
In urban areas bus routes are set up so that no one has to walk more than 400m to a bus stop. Surely a 5 minute walk wouldn't hurt the precious little darlings. Even semi rural areas around here are quite often a driverway to school service.
I know for a fact that morning and afternoon peak traffic halves during school holidays. Imaging the pollution that would disappear if all those school term cars weren't on the road.

I see that today the BBC changed the headline from ""Ban car near schools, health chief urges" to the much more reasonable: "Schools should have 'no idling zones', Public Health England chief says".

I reckon they should ban speed bumps ....
one of the most polluting safety things invented...

creates brake dust on the slow down side
noise pollution in the middle
and
exhaust pollution on the exit side....
