A TRUE study of real-world emissions has begun in Mexico City, marking the first TRUE Latin America remote sensing campaign. The testing and analysis, led by the ICCT and supported by FIA Foundation, is being performed in collaboration with Mexico City Secretaría del Medio Ambiente (SEDEMA). Remote sensing measurements of exhaust emissions will be collected at several locations across the metropolitan area. These data will provide detailed insight into in-use emissions of the Mexico City fleet and help inform policies to improve air quality and reduce health impacts.

A new TRUE study of real-world vehicle emissions in New York City has two key findings in relation to truck emissions in NYC: First, less than 10% of diesel trucks on the road are responsible for more than two-thirds of the fleet's tailpipe PM2.5 emissions; and second, people of colour living in the city are exposed to more PM2.5 from diesel trucks than average while non-Latino white residents are exposed to less.
