The role of traffic congestion on health and environment.

Most of the Indian cities have major traffic congestions. This is in addition to the lax emission control measures with offending commercial vehicles dumping huge SPM and chemical pollutants into the air. Upper respiratory tract infection and infant mortality traceable to poor air quality are on the rise. There is one research paper attributing increased male infertility in Bangalore to increased SPM over the last few decades.

UK has set up a new initiative to tackle this problem in Europe using Space Technology.

Should not India get set up their own act?

I agree that Indian cities have major traffic congestion. But no one can forget that it's because of the European, Japanese cars that run on Indian roads. If UK researchers really care about pollution and its effects; they should first stop selling low grade technology products to Indians. Indians, at the same time, should stop consuming poor technology products.
