Pollution in Los Angeles (LA) is mostly focused into two parts; the air pollution and the water pollution.
Air pollution is caused due the the geographic location of the place, cars and factories that contribute to the smog that is building up around the city and mountain. The pollution that is occurring in the mountains is causing damage to trees and wildlife animals.
Water pollution can be caused by the smog condensing on top of water and from fireworks that rain on top of the water.
The main pollution is the smog and it is the car, diesel trucks and other engines that are being used everyday that are contributing to the building up of the smog.
Here are some transportation problems that occur in LA:
Traffic: Los Angeles probably has the worst traffic in the U.S.A.
The metro does not go into some of the neighborhoods so there is a lot of traffic. This is the problem in Beverlyhills, Santa Monica and West LA.
The subway closes after 1:00 am so people that are out late might get stuck.
The subway does not go straight to the airport so people have to walk a fair way.
