WOULD DECLARING FEDERAL SMOG DAYS REDUCE AUTOMOBILE TRAVEL IN THE WASHINGTON, DC. AREA: THE RESULTS OF A SURVEY OF TRAVEL BY EPA EMPLOYEES ON APRIL 19, 1976

It is sometimes suggested that the intensity of smog episodes in the Washington D.C. area could be reduced by asking Federal employees in the area not to go to work on days forecast to be smoggy, thereby reducing the volumes of automobile travel and emissions during smog episodes. Estimates of the reduction in automoble travel that might be achieved suggest that declaring a Federal smog day might reduce Federal employee automobile trips by 18 to 42 percent and Federal employee vehicle miles traved by 37 to 50 percent.
