Diesel operated ice cream vans need to keep their engines running so their freezers stay cool. But idling vehicles, especially diesel vehicles, emit huge quantities of harmful chemicals into the air such as black carbon and nitrogen dioxide. Ice cream vans most commonly operate in areas frequented by large numbers of small children who are particularly vulnerable to diesel fuel emissions. 
We want to ban the operation of diesel ice cream vans from parks, playgrounds, school gates, youth clubs - any area frequented by children - permitting only electric powered ice cream vans in these locations.
