    A motor vehicle emission inventory is developed for the Perth metropolitan airshed by integrating data on traffic flow conditions with emission factors that incorporate the effects of both speed and acceleration. This highlights the impact of varying driving conditions on the spatial and temporal resolution of vehicle emissions, and illustrates that traffic congestion enhances pollutant production through increased variations in vehicle accelerations.
