Powered Two Wheelers Help in Combating Air Pollution

Powered Two Wheelers Help in Combating Air Pollution

Clean Air Day, taking place on 17th June, promotes solutions to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases in order to assist the well-being of UK citizens.  Whilst the G7 Summit looked at ways in which the world nation can become greener, Powered Two Wheelers will play a key role in being a part of the solution to improve air quality and provide a great contributor to mental & physical health. 

Manufacturers of low and zero emission Powered Two Wheelers (PTWs) are contributing to a greener future whilst also offering a transport solution that reduces fuel costs and journey times.  By using the right vehicle for the right journey, explored in the MCIA policy document ‘The Route’, there are savings to be made both environmentally and economically by choosing a Powered Two Wheeler and others forms of Powered Light Vehicles. 

Tony Campbell, CEO of MCIA said, “Clean Air Day highlights the importance of creating a greener environment for our families.  Not only do Powered Two Wheelers offer zero and low emissions which of course reduce pollution, there are also the additional time and mental health benefits associated with riding”.
