here is conclusive evidence that road transport has a major impact on the environment. Traffic is responsible for 22 per cent of the UK's carbon dioxide output (Foley and Fergusson and emit significant amounts of other air polluting gases such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide

Cairns p. 75) argues that although "fuel and vehicle developments have made a huge difference to local air quality", measures to reduce traffic will also be required if the Government is to achieve its targets on air quality. One such measure is congestion charging which, according to a recent study by (2005), has been successful in reducing vehicle emissions in London.
