THE INFLUENCE OF THE OIL PRICE CRISIS ON ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION BY MOTORIZED TRAFFIC

DER EINFLUSS DER OELPREISKRISE AUF DIE UMWELTBELASTUNGEN DURCH DEN KRAFTFAHRZEUGVERKEHR

Taking the example of pollutant emissions by vehicular traffic in west Berlin, the effects of increases in the price of oil since 1973 on air pollution are determined. Estimation of emissions in the years 1972-1976 enables ecological trends to be described in the short and medium term as they have been affected or caused by the oil price crisis. Contrary to expectations, restrictions on individual traffic brought about by the increased price of oil have not led to a decrease in environmental pollution through reduction of emissions; on the contrary, emissions increased. The cause is the irregular behaviour of drivers in extraordinary situations. /TRRL/
