Essenially, it has been proved that more traffic means more mental health problems. As a medical person myself, I see the effects of pollution on such people as asthma sufferers. The increase in car use must be tackled - and soon. Anyone who saw the evidence presented by BBC2's Horizon should understand that unless we tackle this it may not just be our kids who suffer, we may too when we are old.
If this research mentioned in the Newsham thread is true, then the situation for those in the Old Swan area and those closer to town on Edge Lane will get worse and then expect real problems. Liverpool is being divided by those who want to see ghettos in the north with prosperity on the south. This needs to be stopped. Let's face it - it is only us on the left who will raise this issue.
