Drive Clean is one of the most comprehensive emission-testing programmes in North America. In April 1999, the Drive Clean programme began mandatory vehicle emissions testing in the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton-Wentworth Region. It will stretch from Peterborough to Windsor by 2001. The truck and bus component of the programme began in September 1999. Ontario will be one of only three jurisdictions in North America testing trucks and buses as well as cars. The programme is projected to reduce smog-causing pollutants from vehicles in the programme area by 22 per cent over the course of the programme. Greenhouse gases are also projected to decline.
