VIDEO: Would limiting cars in city centers improve air quality?

We all know cars contribute significantly to air pollution, but can eliminating cars from city centers improve urban air pollution? The city of New York thinks so.

This video clip discusses New York's decision to close several streets around Times Square and the surprising impact this decision had on air quality levels. Could it work for other American cities?

MSN video: Improving air quality

New York as well as other large cities such as Los Angeles have very serious air quality issues, warns the team of air quality experts at AllerAir. Reducing daily exposure to pollutants has been shown to impact our long term health and improve conditions like asthma and allergies, they say.

AllerAir recommends using a home air cleaner that not only features a HEPA filter for particles, but a deep-bed carbon filter for chemicals and odors.

Our indoor air has actually been shown to be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Choosing a high quality air cleaner like an AllerAir Air Medic can make a significant impact in improving overall indoor air quality.
