Road Rationing For Better Air

The city’s air quality is unacceptable. For some, Salt Lake City is becoming unlivable. Has the Legislature considered road-rationing?

Road rationing has been successful in improving the air quality in Latin America, Europe and Asia. While most cities saw short-term improvements in air quality, studies indicate that sustaining those improvements may also require stricter vehicle-emission standards.

Is road rationing a realistic option for our community? It seems like Salt Lake City would benefit from at least a trial period of rationing. To incentivize compliance with the rationing laws, some cities even offer free public transportation! Please contact your legislative representatives and request that they consider a trial period. What’s the harm in a dialogue?

Barely breathing,
