Gas-powered cars and other transportation are a key source of air pollution particularly in major cities. They produce nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and particulate matter adversely affecting health, particularly for those with asthma or other respiratory issues. Making healthy choices to use people power (run, bike, walk) instead of using the car helps keep our air cleaner and increases our own health and well-being. Idling cars contribute to air pollution and this often happens in school areas as students are dropped off and picked up. Young people are one of the higher risk groups for respiratory issues and yet idling is avoidable. For more information regarding air quality and idling, go to: Air quality and Idling cars.
One of the benefits of electric vehicles is better air quality. Electric vehicles do not have an exhaust pipe emitting pollution, which helps to keep our air cleaner.
