Air Pollution and the Future
While we have made significant achievements in improving air quality over the past 20 years, air pollution from automobiles remains a challenge. The number of registered vehicles in Ohio has increased 125 percent since 1970. This increased number of vehicles overshadows the benefits of today's cleaner-burning vehicles. The Ohio E-Check program is essential to identifying those vehicles in need of emission repair so that they can be made to run cleaner and more efficiently.
