I can assure you the largest source of pollution in our area is the burning wood in stoves or fireplaces, not vehicle emissions. There are times when the wood smoke is just overwhelming. If people are serious about reducing pollution, they would require banning the open burning of wood and require wood to only be burned in closed stoves/fireplaces with catalytic converters. The dramatic reduction in pollution by such a restriction has already been proven in Denver.

Well put...!! Nobody is building fires on days with 90 degree temperatures and no wind. The smoke police probably generate more in vehicle emissions than all the fireplaces they can locate emitting smoke.
