A United Nations report finds millions of substandard cars that pose safety, health and environmental hazards are exported every year from developed countries to developing countries, largely in Africa. Voice of America quotes the The UN Environment Program as saying that, other than being a major contributor to air pollution and climate change, the cars are also generally unsafe and responsible for an epidemic of road accidents. The agency’s Executive Director Inger Andersen said, while UNEP is not calling for a complete ban on the export of used vehicles to developing countries, the market should be regulated in both developed and developing countries. Calling on developed countries to stop exporting vehicles that fail environment and safety inspections and are no longer considered roadworthy in their own countries.
