Particle pollution, a modern problem.

It is no secret that the exhaustion from cars, pollutes the air in our cities and causes thousands of deaths and sick people each year. Research shows that the exhaust particles can cause Cancer, various respitory disorders and heart disorders.

The same research also reveals and increase of air pollution in the morning and afternoon rush hours, along with and increase in the weekends.

It is the drivers themselves that are the most exposed to the deadly particles because the of the cars airintake is mostly placed in the from of the car in street level.
It is known that so called particle filters can reduce the particle pollution to almost nothing, and with no other effort than purchasing and installing the particle filter on the exhaust pipes of the car. The only reason this is still not common on todays cars are the lack of political will to legislate this.
