Motor Vehicles & Traffic Transport is the biggest source of air pollution in the UK, and is  responsible for around ¼ of UK emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2).  It  is also a major contributor to climate change, and traffic noise can also be a problem in many areas. Although air quality in the UK is slowly improving, many areas still fail  to meet national air quality objectives and European limit values for  some pollutants - particularly particulates and nitrogen dioxide. Most local pollution in town centres and alongside busy roads is  caused by motor vehicles. The noise and air quality impact of aviation  is also a major concern.
