Air Pollution and the School Run
Apparently a majority of UK parents would like pollution exclusion zones to be enforced around their children's school (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/feb/26/most-uk-parents-back-air-pollution-exclusion-zones-around-schools). Air pollution is certainly a health hazard especially for people at an early stage of development and diverting traffic away from schools at peak times could be beneficial. It is difficult, however, to see how such a move would fit in with the ingrained 'school run' when many of the same folk congregate in cars to collect their offspring!
