Please see below for upcoming public events for the week of April 10, 2023.
Research Seminar on Effects of Brake and Tire Wear Emissions Exposure: On April 10 via remote access, CARB will host a research seminar to provide information on a UCLA research study it funded, which discovered a link between brake and tire wear emissions exposure and an increased risk of negative birth outcomes. The objective was to study the effects of non-combustion emissions from brake and tire wear on birth outcomes in the Los Angeles area. This is the first study in California that has examined the health effects from these exposures. This research will build a better understanding of the disparity in disadvantaged communities and help to develop measures to reduce negative health impacts.
