In New Jersey, transportation is the number one source of greenhouse gas pollution. Emissions from cars and light-trucks account for about 30% of the total hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen emission in the air that contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone or “smog” during the summer months. You can help slow climate change and reduce air pollution. When you purchase a new vehicle, you can make a choice that improves our air quality and global climate.
UPDATE: DEADLINE EXTENDED TWO WEEKS. NEW DEADLINE OCTOBER 26,2018.
