Air Quality 2019

Introduction to Survey

If you care about improving air quality fairly and effectively, please complete the largest ever survey on the Government's and Local Authorities' strategies.

This survey is unashamedly a way to ask what you think about the right ways to improve air quality and benefit our environment. At FairFuelUK, along with MPs and many influential decision makers, we are calling on all national and local politicians, the well-financed environmental groups, and those green agenda driven media commentators, to work with us, to get the best solutions that really will improve air quality without damaging the economy or financially hurting hard-working low-income drivers and small businesses. Surely that is a massively fair ask!  


If we’re not careful the deliberate distortion of the facts of NOx pollution will cost us trillions in transport policy and legislation changes and improve our life expectancy by only a relatively tiny amount of time. 

Please help us to make them listen and get these politicos see some common sense into improving urban air quality!

Privacy Policy: The information you supply in this survey is required to create a consolidated analysis from as many responses in the UK as possible. None of your personal information collected here is displayed to or passed onto third parties. That is guaranteed.  Rest assured, after all your answers are analysed, your personal identification data in the response is permanently deleted.  The final analyses of all responses generated from this survey will be published ASAP in an in-depth report, and sent to targeted national media, every MP and relevant Ministers. Your input into this survey will add to and help convey accurately as to where public opinion is, on these key issues.
 
Thanks for taking part, we promise you, it WILL make a huge difference

Here is why UK drivers need your opinion 
​​​​​​
We’re told almost on a daily basis through the media, we have a major health problem caused mainly by cars, vans, trucks and even motorbikes. We all know pollution is definitely a health issue, particularly in our cities. BUT It’s factually inaccurate and wrong to blame poor urban air quality solely on road vehicles.

We’re told that 40,000 people die in the UK prematurely because of NOx pollution.  So where does that startling figure come from and is it correct? This figure that’s now widely reported, broadly unquestioned, across the media is because of use of the word premature and if we’re not careful this misunderstanding of the facts of NOx pollution will cost us trillions in transport policy and legislation changes and only improve our life expectancy by only a relatively tiny amount of time. In fact, by just 3.5 hours!

We absolutely need to clean our air but we need to apply real numbers and real science to this debate.  We’ve taken a badly phrased headline figure from an official report and allowed it to terrify millions of consumers, devalue their vehicles and put in place bad policies from ill-informed politicos.  If we can’t even accurately understand the numbers what hope do we really have, to improve our air quality?
Bad science won’t help us clean our air. 


Nowhere in The London Mayor’s Transport Strategy, for example, can we find any incentives for consumers to change their behaviour. The modal shift from cars will be driven by punitive extra costs through taxation and road and zone restrictions or ULEZs. Simply put, there will be places in London (and coming to a City near you) where you won’t be able to use or park a car at all and other places where you’ll have to pay for ever mile you travel. With public transport service being cut back and in a state of flux, where do our transport options lie?

This survey is unashamedly a way to ask what you think, and totally from your perspective, about the right ways to improve air quality and benefit our environment. At FairFuelUK, along with MPs and many influential decision makers, we are calling on all national and local politicians, the well-financed environmental groups, and those green agenda driven media commentators, to work with us, to get the best unbiased solutions that will benefit air quality without damaging the economy or financially hurting hard-working low-income drivers and small businesses. Surely that is a massively fair ask!
