While traffic pollution has been indicated in the past as a major contributor to ambient air pollution levels in urbanizing centers of Asia, our results indicate that air pollution levels do not follow major roadway patterns.

Air Pollution and Human Health Burden in Urban India
In India, rapid urbanization has led to a decrease in urban air quality. Few ongoing studies apply spatially heterogeneous sampling to assess ambient air pollution levels in urban India. Understanding air pollution exposure differentials is particularly important in cities, where socio-economic disparity by neighborhood may increase health impacts of varying exposures.
