Why is this important?

Vehicle ownership is directly related to personal driving which contributes to air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Air pollutants are known factors in respiratory disease and chronic illnesses such as asthma, as well as cardiovascular disease and mortality. In addition, a higher level of personal vehicle driving is associated with increased traffic accidents and fatalities.
