ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS AND URBAN TRAFFIC
The study considers four broad categories of emission control programs: Federal Emission Standards; local emission control for vehicles; traffic flow improvements; and mass transit incentives. Local automotive pollution control options are analyzed and compared in terms of their cost and their emission reductions in a sample urban area. The Chicago metropolitan is the sample region selected for the study.
