TRANSPORTATION CONTROLS TO REDUCE MOTOR VEHICLE EMISSIONS

Current information on the types of transportation controls is reviewed, and the effectiveness of various control alternatives in controlling air pollution is considered. Many of the programs could be implemented quickly and at low capital investment, but may have large social and economic impact. If transportation controls could be developed which were effective in reducing air quality levels and had only minor social and economic impact, they would have great significance in the effort to control pollution and introduce an alternative to the present trend for lower national emissions standards for both stationary and mobile sources of pollution. Control methods which give the maximum reduction in air quality levels with the least social disruption are listed. Reduction in emissions which could be attained for a specific area should be determined for each of these alternatives and a combination selected which would provide the desired reduction in air pollution levels to meet the ambient air quality standards. These controls could, however, be effective only when used with new traffic monitoring programs.
