air-pollution-hearts_15311Streets in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Dundee, Perth and Linthligow on track to break legal air pollution limits for 2014 according to new analysis from Friends of the Earth Scotland. And the situation is not expected to improve as Scotland will miss air pollution legal deadline by over a decade.

Friends of the Earth Scotland mid-year analysis of government data shows that air pollution levels in some of Scotland’s busiest streets are continuing to damage health and break European air quality laws.

The analysis follows the recent revelation before European judges that Scotland will not meet air pollution limits until 2020 in Edinburgh, Central Scotland and North East Scotland and 2025 in Glasgow. European law requires that legal limits for a key toxic chemical, Nitrogen Dioxide be achieved by 2010. The delays will mean that Scotland will miss the deadline by a decade in most Scottish cities and fifteen years in Glasgow.
