Road traffic flow and pollution
Emission pollution was at its highest in the early mornings and late evenings, due to heavier road traffic. Our hypothesis has been proven correct.
The pollutant gases released from the combustion of fuel in motor vehicles has significant effects on our environment and the health of living organisms. Many regulations have been introduced to curb vehiular emissions. Further, the use of hybrid vehicles fitted with electric engines has helped to reduce gasoline consumption and the emission of pollutant gases.
The science fair project can also be repeated in other areas like in the city or residential areas. Do temperature and wind conditions affect the level of pollution along our highways?
