What Are Car Emissions?

exhaust 12-14-17 Share:

Car emissions are waste products produced during the combustion process that contribute to a number of environmental problems and health issues — which makes following Virginia state emission inspection regulations not only the law, but also environmentally responsible.

Most of a car's emissions are made up of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and water vapor, as well as such dangerous emissions, or volatile organic compounds, known as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and hydrocarbons. Nitrogen oxides lead to such environmental problems as acid rain and smog, as well as contribute to detrimental health effects in mucous membranes. Hydrocarbons also lead to smog produced primarily from evaporated fuel that has not been burnt.

Carbon monoxide an aggravate lung and heart disease and cause headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and even death. Although carbon dioxide occurs naturally in the environment, in large quantities it allows more sunlight to enter the atmosphere than the amount that can escape, which leads to the trapping of excess heat and global warming.

Virginia drivers can, and should, help reduce the amount of pollution that car emissions create by keeping their cars well maintained and inspected under Virginia state emission laws. Drivers can also avoid unnecessary driving and drive sensibly to cut down on emissions released. As a bonus, implementing emissions-reducing standards will help drivers save money and keep their cars running longer and more efficiently, not to mention avoid penalties for not adhering to Virginia state emission inspection laws.
