Richer people can afford to move out of the more polluted areas. Motoring enables people to live in "leafy suburbs" , or out in the country and to commute to the more polluted city, past the schools and homes of those who live in cheaper, less salubrious areas, where they add to the pollution. So the poor can benefit more from less pollution.
I agree,but even the rich spend a lot of their work time in cities and large towns.
The private car has become a burden we need to rid ourselves of where there's such large concentrations of people.
