Emission Reduction: 20% of your vehicle's current carbon footprintIt is amazing to me that by just slowing down and driving moderately, we can reduce our vehicle's carbon footprint by up to 20 percent. Such a step involves linking your brain, brake, and accelerator together. This is referring to becoming completely aware during your daily commute. Remember that accelerating moderately and braking minimally will reduce you engine's output significantly, as will anticipating changes in traffic. Being aware of traffic and when you may need to stop will minimize the all-too-common stop and go (pound accelerator/slam brake) tendency of city driving.
