 Vehicle exhaust is the major air pollution source in the city.
 
A ban on the running of high-emission motor vehicles on the busy roads of Xiamen will come into force in the first quarter of 2010, according to the Xiamen Environmental Protecting Bureau and Road Transport Bureau.

Xiamen has announced a series of anti-pollution measures to control vehicle exhaust, which is the major air pollution source in the city.

An environmental protection sign, which certifies that exhaust emission of a vehicle has met the national emission standards, will be affixed to all the in-use vehicles in Xiamen. A green sign on the vehicle indicates that it has met the National Emission Standard II, and a yellow sign on the vehicle means it has met the National Emission Standard I.

Vehicles which get the yellow signs will be banned from the busy roads of Xiamen and vehicles that fail to meet exhaust emissions standards will be banned from entering the city.
