Edinburgh school parking ban encourages walking – BBC News
Good news from Edinburgh:
A pilot scheme to ban parking outside primary schools in Edinburgh has led to an increase in the number of pupils walking to school.
Evaluation of the School Streets scheme also showed lower vehicle speeds on surrounding roads and a reduction in the number of cars around schools.
A report to the city council’s transport and environment committee recommended making the pilot permanent.
The Living Streets Scotland charity wants it rolled out nationwide.
