The “project of regulating moving pollutants---activity blueprint for checking, propagating and exhorting not to discharge too much exhaust of motorcycle in 2008” was enforced from 30th, April, 2008 when the contract is signed to 31st, Dec. 2008. Totally had we finished re-inspecting 51,163 motorcycles which haven’t been completed regular check yet, intercepting and checking free 1,128 motorcycles for exhaust emission, getting regular examination for vehicle checking centers 5 times, irregularly examining 36 checking centers, ratifying and contrasting the standard gas of 116 checking centers, holding one educational and illustrational conference and 4 discussion meetings for practice at the motorcycle exhaust checking center, printing 500,000 reminding labels for checking centers to stick it on the motorcycles which have been examined, printing and mailing postcards for 13 months to notice motorcycle drivers to take regular examination for vehicles, working out and enforcing regular education and exhortation of motorcycle checking in junior high schools and elementary schools of Pingtung County, surveying public satisfaction by questionnaire, investigating the traffic volume of Pingtung county’s connective roads, helping environment protection bureau to deal with reports on the trespassing against environment protection of others, setting up the interchange web of regular checking centers and data base of ruined cars, etc.
In terms of the check-in and inspection rate of motorcycles in every township and city in Pingtung county, Wandan township (75.65%）, Pingtung city (73.28%) and Linluo township (69.65%) were the better ones, while Hengchun, Gaoshu, Fangliau and Jiadung were worse. The motorcycles inspected were mainly brands of Sang-Yang, KYMCO and YAMAHA, which shared totally 93.51% or 264,970 vehicles/times; among them, there were 105,411 vehicles/times of YAMAHA which held the biggest sharing. No matter the concentration of CO or HC pollutants, motorcycles from Vespa, Kawasaki and other brands always discharged more pollutants, while KYMCO and Sang-Yang polluted the air less. As to the average emissive concentration of CO, it’s 3.07% among two-stroke motorcycles, and 1.78% among four-stroke motorcycles. As to the average emissive concentration of HC, it’s 5,954 ppm among two-stroke motorcycles, and 736ppm among four-stroke motorcycles. That means both the emissive concentration of CO and HC among two stroke motorcycles are higher than those of four stroke motorcycles, especially the emissive concentration of HC among two stroke motorcycles are approximately as high as 8.09 times of those among four stroke motorcycles. There were 25.56% of two stroke motorcycles that didn’t pass the intercepted inspection, while there were only 8.66% among four stroke motorcycles, and the total average of unqualified in the double check was 13.87%. And of those two stroke motorcycles which have been taken regular inspection, there were 6.29% unqualified in interception for double check, while there were only 2.74% among such kind of four stroke motorcycles. And the total average of the unqualified was 3.74%.
We also finished the examination of 115 checking centers 5 times. Most of the unqualified results included unclear marking of the inspective movement lines, miscellaneous articles piled up at the checking spots, the wasted materials not replaced as regulation and sample tube unclean. But all the situations were improved when the reexaminations were taken. As to the contrast of standard gases, only one center was unqualified at the first examination, all the rest ones have passed the inspection and contrast. And after the unqualified center adjusted the defect by hand, it was qualified in the reexamination.
Until the end of Nov. 2008, the rate of check in to accept inspection in Pingtung county were 59.24% (attributed to the registered ownership of cars) and 51.90% (according to checking centers), and such average rate of Pingtung ranked 20th among 24 counties and cities in Taiwan. Compared with the same period of former years, the rate of this year has been risen 7%, no matter measured according to the registered ownership of cars or checking centers. As extrapolated from the modulus of decreasing vehicle-exhaust emission provided by the Environment Protection Administration, Executive Yuan, the project enforced in this year has curtailed the volume of NMHC 250.83 kilotons/yearly and CO 1,169.31 kilotons/yearly.
