5th highest out of 400 European cities tooGlasgow is the most polluted city in the UK, and the fifth worst in the whole of Europe, a new study shows. The report from the European Environment Agency (EEA) measured the toxic gas nitrogen dioxide, caused by exhaust fumes and industrial pollution. WWF Scotland director Dr Richard Dixon said: “This report identifies that nitrogen dioxide is causing health problems for people in Glasgow and bringing forward their deaths. Scottish Green Party leader and MSP for Glasgow Patrick Harvie said: “At the heart of the solution is providing reliable, clean buses and trains and safer routes for cycling and walking.
After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur. Reducing the number of buses on the streets of Glasgow will go a long way to reducing the pollution and improving safety for cyclists. I don't know if its still the same, but that's what I used to experience until I moved and could use a south side train.
Glasgow is clogged up with cars and I wonder if the ridiculous numbers of traffic lights with long waiting times also have an effect.

I was in China a few weeks back for work and the air pollution in Jining was terrible, though not as bad as Delhi used to be until diesel vehicles were banned.
It seems that Kevin McKenna (executive editor for the Daily Mail in Scotland) is of the belief that reducing the number of cyclist in Glasgow is part of the solution. The buses can be a bit throaty at times, but happily our frequent moist weather keeps most of the particles well damped down. Really doesn't surprise me when you see the sheer volume of vehicles forced through some of the streets in Glasgow.
Road transport is estimated to be responsible for about 50% of total emissions of nitrogen oxides, which means that nitrogen dioxide levels are highest close to busy roads and in large urban areas. This largely appears to be the result of diesel cars creating more nitrogen dioxide than was anticipated.
The real problem in Glasgow is that the transport policy of the last 40 years has been all about increasing the number of cars entering the city. All these strict emissions laws for petrol vehicles are made a mockery of when diesels are allowed to belch out clouds of soot.

Am not sure of the figure but there is a ridiculous amount of bus companies competing for business.
Nitrogen dioxide inflames the lining of the lung and reduces immunity to lung infections such as bronchitis. This makes the roads particularly dangerous as these drivers appear to be racing each other for fares. Studies also suggest that the health effects are more pronounced in people with asthma compared to healthly individuals.
Personally there are certain roads I refuse to use due to the pollution and shoddy driving. I did read some where that the GCC is meant to be taking vehicles off the road if the companies do not 'clean up' in an attempt to sort out the problen.
