Health Effects and Costs of Vehicle Emissions
A Global Autogas Industry Network (Gain) Publication

Motor vehicle pollution has severe adverse health impacts on the community,especially for people living in urban areas or in locations close to busy roads.The resultant health care andlost productivity costs are very high,especially where there are large numbers of diesel vehicles.

For many countries,the net health costs of vehicle pollution have been estimated to exceed 2 per cent of national GDP.

The early adoption of rigorously implemented transport fuel policies,which lead to a strong uptake of cleaner gaseous fuels,can play a very signi .cant role in reducing air pollution and its consequential harm to the community and the national economy.
