HOW CLEAN A CAR?

THE PROGRESS MADE BETWEEN 1968- AND 1971-MODEL AUTOMOBILES DEMONSTRATES THAT CARBON MONOXIDE AND HYDROCARBON EMISSIONS CAN BE "SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED." BUT THESE TECHNIQUES CAN HARDLY BE EXTENDED FURTHER, AND MORE RADICAL CHANGES WILL BE REQUIRED IF 1975 STANDARDS ARE TO BE MET. THREE FACTORS ARE GOING TO BE IMMENSELY IMPORTANT: QUALITY CONTROL, DURABILITY, AND COST. THE RESPONSIBILITY OF MAINTAINING EMISSIONS CONTROL ONCE A VEHICLE IS ON THE ROAD MUST EVENTUALLY BE SHARED BY THE MANUFACTURER, THE OWNER, AND THE STATE. THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF OWNING A CAR IN THE 1970'S AND 1980'S WILL CLEARLY BE MORE ONEROUS AND COSTLY THAN THEY ARE NOW, IF EFFECTIVE CONTROL SYSTEMS ARE TO BE MAINTAINED. /AUTHOR/
