Abstract: Large quantities of air contaminants are emitted from motor vehicles. Air pollution problems resulting from motor vehicles are described and the factors which bring about the problems are discussed. Also discussed is the relationship of traffic to concentrations of pollutants in urban areas. There are opportunities for minimizing motor vehicle created air pollution and the exposure of the public to high concentrations of contaminants through highway design and urban planning.
