Abstract: The growth in transport, especially road-based transport, is associated with environmental problems. Emissions from automobiles have been recognized as the main source of environmental pollution. The Nigerian population perceives road transportation as one of the primary environmental intruders. However, this problem has been substantially reduced in many developed countries as a result of the introduction of various technologies, including the local traffic reduction measures as well as the three-way catalyst. Inadequate transport infrastructure to support the increased number of vehicles plying the Nigerian roads has become a challenge to the government and the transport industry. This paper aims at providing contextual information on the environmental and health related to air pollution stemming from road transportation in Nigeria. Besides, it reviews the causes of transport emissions and the need for an integrated transport system in Nigeria.
