Max Savishinsky, Executive Director, Washington PSR | Seattle Times

Sixty-four percent of Washingtonians live or work near major transportation routes, where the bulk of harmful pollution is generated. Toxic particulates from cars, trucks and buses are highly hazardous to health, and are even more dangerous for low-income communities, communities of color and those located near major transportation corridors. Reducing pollution from gas-powered vehicles will have a direct, immediate and positive impact on health. It will also relieve our already overburdened hospitals and health care workers, and that will save even more lives.
