The article discusses the issue of Tire pollution, also known as tire and road wear particles, which is a problem that is poised to worsen as more drivers transition to electric vehicles (EVs). Tires shed tiny particles with every rotation, and these particles contain toxic substances that can enter the air, soil, and water. The weight of EVs, particularly their batteries, contributes to increased tire wear and pollution. The article suggests that reducing car use, investing in alternative transportation, and promoting smaller and lighter vehicles can help mitigate the environmental and health problems caused by EVs' tire pollution.
