Cars and vehicles are a major source of air pollution in Victoria. Some air pollutants from vehicles can affect people’s health and cause air quality problems like smog.

To reduce your vehicle’s emissions and save fuel costs, you should:

  • maintain your vehicle well
  • look after your tyres
  • drive smoothly.
