    There are many steps that each of us as citizens should take in the state of Utah to improve the air quality. Purchasing and driving fuel efficient vehicles, maintaining the said vehicles properly, carpooling, and taking mass transit are all excellent steps to reducing the air pollution. Each of these steps, including the repair program described in the article, is just one more thing that we can do to help Utah.

    One problem that is yet to be surmounted in Utah is air quality apathy. People may believe that their actions will not make a difference, or that air pollution is something made up by the liberals as a scare tactic. Hopefully this attitude will change over time as people realize that they can make a difference and be a force for good.

    I have a full size truck. I drive it every day. Runs on 100% gasoline. Most of the time I'm the only one in it. Sometimes my wife & dogs are with me. I never carpool with anyone and I never, ever go UTA. So is it my tax dollar that is paying for the repairs of these nice folk's vehicles? I pay my own repairs if and when they are needed. I really can't afford to pay for your's too. But I would rather do that than carpool or go UTA. And I care nothing for the air quality except wishing people would stop complaining about it.
