  • SoE2017: Vehicle emissions

    4 recent views 28 total views
    Emissions from motor vehicles are a function of many factors, but most importantly total travel, fleet mix and emission control technology and driving behaviour.
  • SoE2017: Number of registered vehicles

    2 recent views 19 total views
    The total number of registered motor vehicles shows continued and sustained growth over time.
  • SoE2017: Vehicle kilometres travelled

  • SoE2017: Lead concentrations

    1 recent views 7 total views
    Routine monitoring of lead in air is no longer undertaken in South East Queensland due to the low ambient concentrations following removal of lead in petrol.
