There are over 12,000 taxis in Karaj, capital of Alborz Province west of Tehran, of which one-third are over two decades old.
According to Karaj Municipality head of transportation affairs, Majid Kazemi, 4,700 taxis are clunkers releasing toxic emissions into the air, Mehr News Agency reported.
“As is the case in many cities, old and dilapidated cars are the main source of air pollution in Alborz,” he says.
Close to 18% of the country’s road traffic passes through Alborz as many highways connecting Tehran to other provinces criss-cross Alborz.
