Dartford Crossing a rural road for EU pollution stats


#1

The busiest rural road in Kent:

Dartford Crossing excluded from pollution assessments - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-39152942

Sneaky fookers!

Also the Euston Road monitors “break down” with surprisingly regularity.

Probably clogged up with diesel fumes.

They’re claiming it was a mistake, something tells me it was originally deliberate, leaving out one of London’s worst pollution blackspots

statistics are only to fool the people that believe them


#7

Is Dartford in London?

Not true... it's the people who interpret and report the statistics that are trying to fool people. Don't blame the statistics, blame the idiot who ignores the statistician or designs the data collection in a way that influences his/ her agenda.

Quite the opposite; surely a randomly-chosen mile of A road is more likely to be in an urban area than a randomly-chosen mile of motorway?
