In the urban areas of Texas, concentrations of emissions from automotive exhaust pose a potential threat to human health. Ways to improve air quality include:

  • Use public transportation / carpools
  • Use alternative fuels in the TxDOT fleet
  • Create High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes
  • Add capacity to highways to reduce idling
  • Improve railroad crossings to prevent vehicle stopping

The Drive Clean Texas campaign is a statewide initiative that makes Texas drivers aware of the seriousness of air pollution, educates them about reducing emissions and encourages changes in driving habits.
