Vehicle emissions

Shamal Chand, Kuku Bau Rd, Nausori | Saturday, June 17, 2017

VEHICLE emissions, especially bus smoke, keeps on increasing and the trend continues.

Looks like relevant authorities are least bothered in regards to the abovementioned as I believe no action or preventative plans are in place.

Buses which I have seen emitting excessive black/bluish and whitish smoke at the start of this year are still continuing on the same pace daily on our roads.

Government is talking about climate change, but what actions have relevant authorities taken so far to solve excessive bus emissions, at least trying to bring it to a minimal level? I guess none so far.

Let's not forget that vehicle emissions carbon monoxide (the silent killer), is one of the worst enemies present around us that we are breathing on a daily basis and also harms the ozone layer as well, which later brings negativity to our environment.

Since least has been done by LTA to combat vehicle emissions, I reckon Government should seriously consider stepping in and addressing the abovementioned issues.

I believe the Ministry of Environment would be the best alternative.
