  • From the foam and plastic in its seats to the petroleum in its tires, each car is a small pollution factory. Several tons of waste and 1.2 billion cubic yards of polluted air are generated in its manufacture alone! During its lifetime, on the road, each car produces another 1.3 billion cubic yards of polluted air and scatters an additional 40 pounds of worn tire particles, brake debris and worn road surface into the atmosphere.
  • The average driver spends $9,641 each year on car-related expenses – that’s 52.2 cents per mile!
  • Riding your bike at a moderate speed burns 472 calories/hour, while driving burns just 148 calories/hour.
