Air pollution and you
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Everyone in Utah who complains about the air pollution right now should ask themselves: Have I taken public transit lately? Have I carpooled recently? Have I driven when I could have walked?

Do I idle my car to warm it up in the mornings? Do I let it run idle at the dry cleaners, drive-thru banking and fast food joints?

Did I plan my Saturday shopping so I could travel efficiently? Did I drive my child to school when she could have walked?

It's time for each of us to stop complaining and start changing our behavior.
