    The impacts on the environment including those to buildings, water bodies, and ecosystems will be addressed. Concerns about the effects of vehicle pollution on human health are discussed in Health Impacts of Motor Vehicles. 2. Impacts of Secondary Pollutants Photochemical SmogFile Size: KB. An off-road vehicle is considered to be any type of vehicle which is capable of driving on and off paved or gravel surface. It is generally characterized by having large tires with deep, open treads, a flexible suspension, or even caterpillar tracks. Other vehicles that do not travel public streets or highways are generally termed off-highway vehicles, including tractors, forklifts, cranes, backhoes, bulldozers, and .

    Nearly a decade's worth of data and observation from an environmental group suggests Alberta's fragile backcountry is being damaged by unsustainable off-highway vehicle use. Ontario’s economic impacts from off-highway vehicle users (excluding snowmobiles) currently results in over $ million in GDP, creates over 9, direct and indirect jobs, and contributes $27 million annually in tax revenue for provincial and federal governments, with an additional $ million in tourism spending, and creates an additional 70 full time equivalent jobs.

      One of the most important objectives for the global automotive industry is to reduce the environmental impact of vehicles. Off-highway vehicles (OHVs) contribute significantly to raising pollution levels due to their huge powertrains, which consume large amounts of fuel and generate considerable exhaust emissions. In order to decrease exhaust emissions and reduce fuel . Red Rock Canyon State Park (SP) faces a number of complex issues, one of which is the management of off-highway vehicle (OHV) use. This current project was initiated (1) to investigate the state of knowledge on the effects of off-highway vehicles on public lands, (2) to investigate off-highway vehicle use and their effects upon cultural resources and natural values within Red Rock Canyon SP.

Published material. The use of off-road vehicles (ORVs) is widespread and a recognized management problem in the deserts of the southwestern United States and elsewhere (Sheridan, ). One of the most important and long-lasting effects of ORV use is the compaction of soil caused by the force of rolling wheels.

Off-road vehicle had an impact on vegetation composition, cover, density and growth. Cover of native species decreased in all microhabitats, giving the way to weed encroachment (reaching as high as 56%).

The ORV impact on density of native vegetation was species dependent and varied with by: 2. environmental impact of transport is important because it is a major user of energy, and burns most of the world's petroleum.

Theirs is the task. of providing benefits to participants while reducing impacts to a minimum. A recurring theme throughout the book is the importance of life cycle analysis for all vehicle technologies, old and new.

A number of examples are provided to illustrate how the assessment of the environmental impact of vehicles would be incomplete without taking into account both direct (e.g.

tailpipe emissions) and indirect (e.g. fuel extraction, vehicle disposal) processes. This report and its appendices compile and synthesize results of a comprehensive literature and Internet search conducted in May The literature search aim was to find information on effects of off-highway vehicle (OHV) use on land health, or "natural resource attributes," and includes databases with archived information from before OHVs came into existence to May While there are many threats to preserving wildlife ranging from global warming to development, the negative impacts from off-road vehicles (ORVs) on wildlife have been well documented in the scientific literature.

ORVs can impact wildlife through direct mortality, increased legal and illegal harvest, disturbance, and habitat loss. An estimated 11 million visits to national forests involve off-highway-vehicle (OHV) use—or about 5 percent of all recreation visits (English ).

Experience has shown that off-road use of vehicles may result in one or more of the following effects: All vehicles: Physical soil. Other environmental impacts of transport systems include traffic congestion and automobile-oriented urban sprawl, which can consume natural habitat and agricultural lands.

By reducing transportation emissions globally, it is predicted that there will be significant positive effects on Earth's air quality, acid rain, smog and climate change.
