Cars & the Environment

Major toxic substances that contribute to air pollution are released into the atmosphere daily.  Driving your vehicle requires fossil fuel, which is the major cause of releasing greenhouse gases into the air.  Global warming can be stopped.  As we move into the future, green cars’ technology seem to have only improved.  Cars have gotten cleaner over the years.  This will definitely help the environment and stabilize the economy.  Although green cars are a good choice they can still be involved in accidents.  For help on knowing what to do after an accident, dial 1-800-411-PAIN.  We have offices in Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Gainesville, Ocala, Orlando, Tampa, Clearwater, Fort Myers, Naples, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Nitrogen oxide emissions and hydrocarbon emissions contribute to air pollution.  The environment is greatly affected by these vehicle emissions.  Nitrogen oxides, for instance, may contribute to acid rain.  Acid rain harms soils and contaminates water.  Organisms depending on these resources will eventually die.  The excess of carbon dioxide in the air can also raise global temperatures by trapping heat from the sun.  It can also damage the ozone layer, which protects us from the sun by not allowing (UV) light reach the earth.  What about fluids?  Car fluids are very harmful for the environment when disposed of incorrectly or when leaking.
Hybrid fuel vehicles and electric cars are becoming more and more common. They were rare and expensive once but now they are becoming more affordable and acceptable.  Hybrid engines are smaller and more efficient than traditional fuel engines.  They reduce harmful emissions and consume less gas.  The plug-in hybrids are even better as they can be recharged for a longer electric driving mode.  Even though they have plenty of benefits, hybrid vehicles can still be dangerous during an accident.  Contact 1-800-411-PAIN in Florida if you or a loved one becomes the victim of one of these accidents.
