Cleveland Hts. Has a budget in the amount of $4.4m. The city is requesting a bike lane within the city. The purpose of the bike lane is to discourage residence from driving their car and to become environmental sociable. With pollution on the rise, the board felt biking could slow down the process. We can view below Cleveland budget and hope both parties can come up with ideas slowing the risks and increase their subsidy. 1. Random emission testing: $3.6M
2. Encourage alternative transportation, walking, and bicycle use: $4.4M 3. Promote fuel-efficient cars: $3.3M
4. Encourage carpooling: $2.8M
To estimate the health impacts of alternative strategies for Reducing carbon dioxide emissions from transport.
9 Lower carbon driving
• Lower carbon emission motor vehicles
9 Increased active travel
• Replacing urban car and motorcycle trips with walking
Reducing air pollution.
Keep tires properly inflated and aligned.
In the summertime, fill gas tank during cooler evening hours to cut down on evaporation. Avoid spilling gas and don't "top off" the tank. Replace gas tank cap tightly. Avoid waiting in long drive-thru lines, for example, at fast-food restaurants or banks. Park your car and go in. When possible, use public transportation, walk, or ride a bike. Get regular engine tune ups and car maintenance checks (especially for the spark plugs). Use energy-conserving (EC) grade motor oil.
Ask your employer to consider flexible work schedules or telecommuting. Report smoking vehicles to your local air agency. www.epa.gov/smokefree Global climate policy scenarios: the benefits and trade-offs for air pollution.
