In its analysis, CSE has said that if half the cars stay off the road in support of the odd-even system, the total load of particulate matter and nitrogen oxide can be halved from the car segment, cutting down on nitrogen oxide, benzene and carbon monoxide emissions. Reiterating the impact of vehicles on air quality, a recent study of the Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur showed that in winters, vehicles are second largest emitters of PM 2.5 pollutant after road dust. These pollutants are particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter and get deposited in our respiratory organs and are also known to be carcinogenic, leading to lung cancer.
