Greenpeach have discovered that new 'real-world' vehicle emissions tests, introduced on 1st September, are avoiding rush hour traffic. 

Emissions Analytics were commissioned by Greenpeace to carry out tests on a Volkswagen Golf and a Vauxhall Insignia on commuter routes around London, during rush hour. 

They say the results have shown NOx emissions were up to 42% higher for the Insignia and 118% higher for the Golf, than the levels detected in the official tests.

Greenpeace have said that it is a 'major flaw' that car companies have been allowed to avoid rush hour when testing their cars in urban areas.
