Does traffic effect pollution a lot?

    Yes. A greater concentration of car exhaust emitted by autos idling on streets and highways results in more polluted air, particularly during the late afternoon/early evening rush hour. Air pollution caused by traffic can cause or worsen asthma, and it also affects nearby habitats.

    In order to keep your lungs as healthy as possible while living in a metropolitan area, try to avoid exercising outdoors during late afternoon and evening, as physical activity causes you to breathe more air, more deeply. Morning is best, and working out indoors is fine any time.

    Yes, definitely.  At times of high traffic there is definitely an increase in the amount of pollutants emitted into the atmosphere.  Because many of these pollutants are Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs, a contributor to ground-level ozone), ozone concentrations will also increase during times of high traffic.
