In the short term it can reduce the amount of pollutants (particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide and ozone) produced by combustion engines, which can become particularly concentrated in urban areas. Diesel exhaust is particularly strong in these pollutants and can cause a wide range of respiratory and other diseases.
