Road air quality is not a topic going away any time soon. Road transport accounts for one third of all NOx emissions. The European Environment Agency estimates that road transport contributes to about 70% for nitrogen dioxide, and 30% for particulate matter. This poses an increasing risk to public health and wellbeing: particularly under recent circumstances where a link has been made between a higher mortality rate in areas of air pollution.
