Engine idling is an issue that not only wastes fuel but releases significant volumes of harmful emissions into the air and contributes to air pollution, which in turn, greatly affects our health.

This consultation was the second wave of a wider project to inform Portsmouth City Council about the prevalence of engine idling within Portsmouth as part of the Air Quality Full Business Case (FBC).

Wave one of the consultation was launched prior to the implementation of the campaign between October and November 2021 and was open for five weeks. This second wave of the consultation took place two months after the implementation of the ‘150 balloons’ campaign and aimed to measure the impact and awareness levels of the campaign as well as any behaviour change in drivers attitudes towards engine idling.
