In Tirana it is 3,000 or more per km / square. The density of the population is in correlation with pollution, the larger the population, the greater the pollution," says the specialist Lavdosh Feruni.

There are 557 thousand vehicles in our country, of which only in Tirana district are about 205 thousand, and in Elbasan 36950 vehicles. But what is the solution for reducing the level of pollution?

"Here are some elements that can improve the situation in terms of fuel quality, old cars, but these are not fundamental, marginal. The greater the number of cars, the greater the pollution, because the speed of traffic is reduced. Reducing pollutant emissions comes from policies for cars-free cities and we should encourage this, something is going to be done in Albania. "

Over 7 million people a year lose their lives from air pollution.
