Richard Thomas started this petition to Thoughtless Car Drivers

Every day I walk past numerous parked cars and vans with the driver sitting there and the engine running. This is often to keep the aircon or phone charger operating. Not only is this contributing to really bad air quality for passing pedestrians (including babies and toddlers in buggies) but is exacerbating climate change. Childhood asthma is on the rise as well. 

I would like this to be regarded as an offence - just like parking on a double yellow line - and it can be policed by traffic wardens with cautions rising to PCNs for failure to react to the caution. Nationwide Publicity campaigns can help to change the national psyche on this selfish and thoughtless practice.
