The pollutants are also nearly 10 times more far-reaching than previously thought, according to the researchers, who measured pre-sunrise air toxins around Interstate 10 in 2008. "I would certainly say that this has implications for those who live near all the major freeways," said Dr. Arthur Winer, the principal investigator.

Scientists from UCLA's School of Public Health found the most toxic time of year is winter, before sunrise, in cities that are south of the freeway.
