Clear the Air Talks in Glasgow on Sept 27th!

Government statistics estimate that air pollution in the UK reduces the life expectancy of every person by an average 7-8 months, with an estimated cost of up to £20 billion each year. A recent UN pollution report found that air in 44 UK cities and towns is too dangerous to breathe and estimated over 40,000 premature deaths per year from road polluted air. At our TRANSPORT Smart Class in Manchester in July, award winning parking, environmental and traffic management pioneer, Imperial, and leading intelligent traffic and clean air zone enforcement provider, Videalert, pointed out that air pollution is even a significant contributor to type 2 diabetes (causes nearly 15,000 new cases each year in Britain) and highlighted that in 2012 (according to Defra and DfT’s “Improving air quality in the UK” report) air quality had a £2.7 billion impact on productivity alone.

At TRANSPORT Smart Class, Scotland 2018 – September 27th, Radisson Blu Glasgow – we’re delighted to welcome back Ashley Bijster, MD of Imperial, and Tim Daniels, Director at Videalert, for their latest contribution to the series. Ashley and Tim will demonstrate that effectively managing and enforcing CAZs and LEZs needn’t be a giant leap into the unknown and can be achieved by simply utilising proven technologies in a way that will make a very real difference to the quality of life in our cities and towns.
