Pre-booking a parking space can help reduce air pollution

Author: Sam Allibone


YourParkingSpace.co.uk has found that pre-booking a parking space can help reduce CO2 pollution.


We’ve all been there – driving around the streets and car parks, searching for a parking space. This may be the norm, but there are serious environmental issues raised by this action. This unnecessary driving creates excess CO2 emissions that are released in to the air, polluting the atmosphere. 

YourParkingSpace.co.uk has found that last year 132 tonnes of CO2 was saved through its customers pre-booking a parking space and heading straight to it, rather than scouring the nearby area. This figure is equivalent to the emissions produced by burning 53 tonnes of coal. 46,000 grams of nitrogen oxides, which can cause smog, were also saved.

Harrison Woods, managing director at YourParkingSpace.co.uk, said: “Changing attitudes towards how motorists drive and park can help put an end to the environmentally damaging practice of circling the block in the hope of finding an available parking space.

“Our research is a stark reminder of how much air pollution can be avoided – some 132 tonnes of carbon dioxide in one year alone by YourParkingSpace.co.uk customers – simply by driving straight to a pre-booked parking space.”
