'Please switch your engine off'

By Spalding Today Letters

Victor Lewis (Letters, August 6 edition) complains, as I do, about pollution from motor vehicles standing at level crossings.

Are Brits a bit mindless? Or is it just when they get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle that they lose their concern for the environment?
