Pollution warning

TRANSPORTENERGY has warned fleets to seriously consider the impact their vehicles have on the environment as record summer temperatures have caused pollution levels to soar.

The warning comes as French authorities slashed speed limits to 18mph in a bid to reduce exhaust emissions after pollution in Paris climbed to dangerous levels.

Colin Matthews, head of TransportEnergy Programmes, said: 'Although pollution is often more noticeable during the hot summer months, it is a year-round problem. It is essential that individual drivers and businesses take immediate steps to reduce vehicle emissions.'
