How to reduce car pollution

Advice on how to reduce car pollution and get a free emissions test.

We work with local garages to improve local air quality. We carry out roadside emissions checks on cars with Police Scotland.

We issue Fixed Penalty Notices to drivers of cars which fail the roadside emissions test.

How can I reduce car pollution?

  • avoid using cars for short journeys
  • care for your car. Check tuning, tyre pressure, breaks and fuel consumption
  • get a regular service
  • remove weight you don't need. For example,  a roof rack
  • consider low rolling resistance tyres
  • use higher gears when you can
  • switch off your engine when stopped
  • only use air conditioning when you need it
  • share journeys or lift share
