Abstract

India is facing some significant air pollution dilemmas since last 10 years and it's increasing at a worrying rate. Researchers Conclude that when the pollution level keeps on increasing at the current rate, the life span would decline at least 10 years in some parts of the country by 2022. Automobiles are the primary supply of air pollution in India's major cities. The current time vehicle exhausts situation is dependent upon improvements in perspective, type of vehicles, models, and year of manufactures. In India, transportation sectors produces an estimated 261 tonnes of CO2, that 94.5% is contributed by road transport. The transportation sectors in India consume about 17% of total energy and responsible for a 60% production of the greenhouse gases from numerous activities. The pollution from automobile is a result of release like CO, unburnt HC, Pb, NO2 and SO2 and SPM primarily from tailpipes. The aim of this study was to examine the automobile pollution and traffic congestion at different locations of Bareilly. The CO emission at these locations was observed with CO-84 Monitor during peak hours. These values were interpreted with NAAQ standards and places where the deviation occurred were identified.
