• I only skimmed the article and the study, but fake news seems a little harsh - am I missing something? Part of the study is a first-cut equality impact for LTNs, based on demographic data. This appears to show that even if LTNs were to displace all through traffic onto high streets and main roads (and AFAICS the study challenges that claim) this does not appear to have a disproportionate effect on any one income or racial group. The article then just says 'a claim of disproportionate impact on lower-income groups has been made by LTN opponents; this study shows that isn't the case'.
