Document Details

The assesment for the M1 shows the levels as harmful emissions reducing between 2013-2106 but FAILS to mention that this was due to the M1 being only 4 lanes (2x2) with average speed cameras set at 50mph.  It is basic knowledge that a vehicle travelling at 50mph emits considerably less pollutants that a motor vehicle travelling at 60mph or 70mph.  The whole report is therefore suspect.
