Active transport in areas around schools and in the centre of St. Helier

St. Helier gets clogged up with cars unecessarily. There should me more opportunities for active transport (walking, cycling) in central areas and areas around schools. 

Why the contribution is important

Improves air quality, safety, health and promotes more sustainable mobility among younger generations. Ensure the centre of town is safer and more accessible to youth and elderly population. 
Reduces carbon emissions from traffic.

    One note is just a general pollution thing and that is banning idling in stop/start traffic, especially in school zones.

    Pedestrians should have priority in town. This means there should be zebra crossings at junctions where it's safe to have them and if not there should be traffic light crossings at junctions that can be crossed completely and immediately (with a lag time between red lights for vehicles to keep up traffic flow). They need to be placed in places where people are likely to cross. Where there are currently a lot of people crossing but there's no crossing there should be a formal crossing that minimises inconvenience for pedestrians.
