Abstract:

Air pollution--including that from light-duty cars and trucks--poses a major public health threat in New Jersey. Clean Cars, Cleaner Air presents the results of emissions modeling that calculates how much emissions of smog-forming and toxic pollutants could be reduced if New Jersey adopted more stringent vehicle emission standards. (New Jersey has since adopted those standards.)
