The importance of emissions regulations cannot be understated, and we are only fighting the court battles that we are because the law has not been adhered to.
In the last few decades, we have been able to achieve huge reductions in emissions thanks to new technology. A lot of this is down to EU emission regulations, and it is important for all carmakers to follow them.
A key reason as to why there are emissions regulations in place is to keep people healthy and to help the environment stay protected. NOx can affect the tropospheric ozone that we breathe, and pollution in the air can lead to a decrease in vegetation growth and a reduction in crop yields.
The importance of emissions regulations must never be ignored
As well as damaging the environment, pollution can also damage human health. This is exactly why the importance of emissions regulations must never be ignored.
Dangerous levels of NOx can irritate your respiratory system, affecting your lungs which can make it more difficult to breathe. Permanent damage can also be caused, and chronic lung diseases can be aggravated in the long-term as well.
NOx can cause the immune system’s ability to fight off bacterial infections to be adversely affected. People with asthma, as one example, may experience more severe attacks.
With these issues in mind, emissions regulations are in place to ensure that the environment and we, as people, are protected. Following the regulations can ensure that the NOx exhaust emissions are low enough to give people the best quality of life.
