Smog is present in all modern cities, but it is more common in cities with sunny, warm, dry climates and a large number of motor vehicles.
Because it travels with the wind, it can affect sparsely populated areas as well.
Such is the case in Riverside and other Inland communities where due to geographic location we endure more pollutants than what we generate. Pollution from the greater Los Angeles area funnels into the Inland region via air currents through passes in the natural barrier of mountain range between the greater Los Angeles area and the Inland Empire.
Smog is a problem in a number of cities and harms human health, especially senior citizens, children, and people with heart and lung conditions such as emphysema, bronchitis, and asthma.
