BAN the BLOWERS started this petition to Governor Gavin Newsom

One of the most pressing issues we have, is our air quality, followed by noise pollution. With the recent events of the Coronavirus, we have all learned a great deal on how to better our operations, our lifestyle, our immediate environment. One of the larger contributors to air and noise pollution is the commercial use of gas powered leaf blowers. And now there is concern about the transmission of the Coronavirus by use of the leaf blower.

Several cities across the U.S. are moving to ban the leaf blower right now in effort to curb the negative effects of the use of the blowers on the respiratory system. California is now experiencing bluer, less polluted skies due to the lack of autos currently running.  Our cities can experience more bluer skies when commercial leaf blowing is banned, as one leaf blower's emissions is equal to 17 autos running. These machines are not needed when a rake and a broom are effective and emit no pollution and do not propel viral toxins, allergens, metals, animal dropping residue into the air as the commercial leaf blower does. These machines create excessive noise that also assaults the auditory function at damaging decibels.
