Taipei motorists

Motorists crowd at a junction during rush hour in Taipei October 29, 2009. There are around 8.8 million motorcycles and 4.8 million cars on Taiwan’s roads and nearly all motor vehicles and inhabitants are squeezed into a third of the island’s area. This results in high concentrations of polluting emissions in the places where people live and work, according to official reports. A U.N. climate change summit in Copenhagen will be held in December. REUTERS/Nicky Loh (TAIWAN TRANSPORT ENVIRONMENT SOCIETY IMAGES OF THE DAY) BEST QUALITY AVAILABLE
