Section 226 of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1977 directed the USEPA to perform a study of carbon monoxide (CO) exposures in the passenger area of sustained use vehicles, i.e., buses, taxis, and police cars. A field investigation of vehicle CO levels in two metropolitan areas was conducted. Study objectives were to determine if CO concentrations in the passenger area of sustained-use vehicles is a health concern; to identify conditions and vehicle types conducive to high interior CO exposures, and intrusion mechanisms for such vehicles; and to recommend steps for identifying hazardous vehicles/driving conditions and for reducing CO exposures. CO was measured with passive dosimeters, active personal samplers, and continuous electrochemical analyzers; a tracer gas detection system was used to identify intrusion pathways.
