Air pollutant emission 2010 limits exceeded in twelve EU Member States; road transport NOx a main factor

These pollutants can cause respiratory problems, contribute to the acidification of soil and surface water, and damage vegetation. The road transport sector is one of the main contributory factors behind the large number of NO x exceedances, contributing approximately 40% of total EU-27 NO x emissions. This is partly because the sector has grown more than expected and partly because vehicle emission standards have not always delivered the anticipated level of NO x reductions.
