The report evaluates transportation controls to reduce motor vehicle emissions in major metropolitan areas. It brings together in a preliminary form, a description and evaluation of those transportation controls which could conceivably reduce motor vehicle emissions in the next few years. The information is presented, divided into seven chapters, each of which deals with a different transportation control. The chapter headings are as follows: Inspection, Maintenance and Retrofit; Gaseous Fuel Systems; Traffic Flow Techniques; By passing Thru Traffic; Improvements in Public Transportation; Motor Vehicle Restraints and Work Schedule Changes. Each chapter consists of a section defining and describing the measures considered, an analysis of the air pollution control potential, and a discussion of institutional feasibility.
