Regulations for vehicle emissions have changed drastically since the dawn of the automobile in the late 1800’s. At the very beginnings, there were no sort of regulations at all, and the vehicles were allowed to expel whatever dangerous and hazardous chemicals they may produce directly into the atmosphere. Today however, there have been strict changes to vehicle emissions in the United States, which requires all automakers to abide by a set number of rules and regulations to ensure that each vehicle is running as clean as possible. Catalytic converters and other emissions-related equipment help to absorb the harmful emissions before they are dispersed into the atmosphere, making newer vehicles up to 50% more efficient than those of the past few decades.
