    TRAFFIC AND DRIVERS SYMBIOSIS: MANAGING BOTH FOR LOWER AIR POLLUTION

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 11 (2017), Issue 12, pg(s) 587-590

    Air pollution problems in urban areas mainly can be connected with the high amounts of toxic exhaust emissions, generated from the growing use of vehicles that use fossil fuels. Roads in urban areas are full with vehicles, and their management is important not just for smoothing traffic flows, but also for reduction of air pollution. Various ways could be considered in which traffic management can affect local air pollution. But, is not just traffic management that should be considered solely. Attention should be given to the behavior of the drivers, which also has his impact on air pollution levels. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to show the importance that traffic control and management as well as drivers’ behavior together have on exhaust emission pollution. In addition to that, measures with their effects in the both categories: traffic management and drivers’ behavior are proposed.
