Car-free zones have started to be introduced in Glasgow. They have been introduced in around seven primary schools. This is part of a trial to improve road safety and bring awareness to young children. Traffic will be banned from certain areas at designated times; this ensures can come to school and leave school safely on foot. Glasgow City Council said introducing this scheme is because they have got complaints about dangerous driving and air pollution.
I think it would make a positive impact if this happened near us as it would reduce air pollution. It also wouldn’t work for those who can’t walk home as they wouldn’t be able to get home after school or get to school.
