TxDOT is launching its “Drive Clean Texas” air campaign across the Lone Star State.

Many of the toxins in the air come from vehicles and the “Drive Clean Texas” campaign was created to build awareness on how to keep the air safe, according to TxDOT. There are nine regions in Texas that the air quality is not up to par.

Here are some steps to help keep the air clean:

  • Keep vehicles well maintained, properly fuel vehicles by tightly sealing the gas cap
  • Stop at the click when fueling your vehicle
  • Obey speed limits,
  • Avoid idling the vehicle for extended periods of time
  • Avoid aggressive driving with rapid starts and stops

The campaign features the Drive Clean Texas Road Trip game, a fun, interactive way to learn about reducing harmful vehicle emissions.

This fun interactive game could cause the participant to win $5,000 and other fun inclusions gained by winning.
