ON THE REGIONAL IMPLICATIONS OF AIR POLLUTION CONTROL

THIS PAPER SHOWS THE MANNER IN WHICH REGIONAL CONSIDERATIONS ENTER INTO AND COMPLICATE THE DESIGN OF AN EFFICIENT SET OF AIR POLLUTION CONTROL POLICIES. THE NATURE OF INTERRELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN REGIONAL VARIATIONS AND OPTIMAL POLICY SELECTION ARE IDENTIFIED. MANDATORY VEHICLE INSPECTION/MAINTENANCE AS A SPECIFIC NEAR-TERN EMISSION CONTROL POLICY IS EXAMINED. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT FOR REGIONS CHARACTERIZED BY A HIGH CO PROBLEM, A SIMPLE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM IS AN EFFICIENT POLICY FOR ACHIEVING SOME IMPROVEMENT IN AIR QUALITY. USE OF THE SAME PROGRAM FOR A REGION HAVING A HIGH HC PROBLEM IS HIGHLY INEFFICIENT. /DOT/
