Ground-Level Ozone Pollution -Ground-level ozone pollution is formed when emissions from cars; industry; lawn equipment; and paints, stains and solvents combine with other pollutants and “cook” in the heat and sunlight. The highest ozone levels are usually recorded in the summer months when temperatures are in the high 80s and 90s and the wind is stagnant or light.
Every Trip Counts -Not driving your car during the summer ozone months is one of the best ways you can help reduce ozone-creating pollutants. The Every Trip Counts program provides incentives to people who choose to leave their car at home and bike, walk or use the bus a minimum of two trips per week during the summer ozone months.By leaving your car at home, you’ll help improve our summer air and be eligible for random prize drawings for RTD ride coupons. The program is the result of a terrific partnership between the Regional Air Quality Council and the cities of Arvada, Lakewood, Wheat Ridge and Edgewater.
