Sign to ask drivers to turn off engine whilst idling is obstructed

Reported via desktop in the Road Signage category anonymously at 11:28, Thu 17 June 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Arley hill is used as a cut through for many drivers to join the main road (A38 gloucester - cheltenham road). Traffic builds up and there is a sign asking drivers to switch off their engine to reduce traffic fumes whilst idling to reduce fume build up. However this sign has been vandalised and the writing is no longer clear. Hardly any drivers are switching off their engines and the road becomes very polluted. It is a key walking route for primary school children attending Dolphin School and Cotham Garden School as well as secondary school children attending Cotham School. There are many pedestrians using this route at the same time as peak traffic build up and the air is very polluted causing harm to health. In addition it would be helpful to have another sign perhaps further up the hill informing drivers that they are required to switch off their engines. Drivers using the route are aware that they will be waiting there for a while as the traffic lights only let a few cars through at a time.
