Risk Sciences and Public Policy

Workshop on Traffic, Health, and Infrastructure Planning
February 1–3, 2004
Baltimore, Maryland

International experts in mobile source air pollution emissions and exposures, their associated health effects, and transportation infrastructure planning and policy met for an interdisciplinary discussion regarding the current science on air pollution exposures from proximity to motor vehicle emissions and related health effects. The workshop participants also identified planning and policy issues related to localized motor vehicle emissions and health concerns, and provided recommendations for future research and policy directions.

A report of the workshop findings and recommendations was published in the Archives of Environmental & Occupational Health (vol 60, no. 2, 2005).

Background information summary documents based on documents prepared prior to the workshop and information gathered during the workshop are available here as supplements to the published report:
