Why you could suffer from more pollution while driving a car than walking on the street

Below is a short finding done in London 2014

  • People in cars exposed to up to 15 times pollution of walkers and cyclists
  • Emissions are highest in the centre of the carriageway, where the cars are
  • Dirty air is sucked in through car air filters and breathed in by passengers
  • Those who live in big cities have lower life expectancies because of pollution
  • Vehicles close together suck in each other’s emissions.
