We use about15,000 litres (15kg )of air daily: the quality of air we breathe is vital to our health. But In Dakar and many other African cities the air is loaded with harmful pollutants. Fuel-powered vehicles pollute the air through the release of gases and particles. As road traffic and the number of vehicles increase, urban transportation is a major cause of air pollution causing ecological consequences and serious respiratory diseases.
