Health warning for people in cars

The air in a car contains up to 18 times more toxins than ‘ambient air’ away from the car. On a bike, cycling not too strenuously, you breathe less toxins than someone in a car on the same route. (Plus cyclists can often follow less-polluted routes, and in the car you’re not getting any exercise.)

Details here, to be mulled over.
