Mexico's Environmental concerns.

Mexico's capital, Mexico City, has an air pollution problem. Mexico City is covered in smog due to the millions of cars there. Other contributing factors of the smog are industrial growth and population boom. What makes it worse is the Sierra Madre mountains are surrounding the city trapping the pollution inside and not letting it escape. One solution is to use a catalytic converter, which reduces tail-pipe emissions. Another solution is keeping vehicles off the road based on the last numbers of their license plate.
