Monoxitube asks every driver to "Face your exhaust."
The Monoxitube helps drivers become aware of the toxic chemicals produced when driving. The Monoxitube is a 25-foot tube that attaches to the exhaust pipe of a car and the other end slides through the driver-side window, sending the carbon monoxide fumes from the tailpipe to the driver's seat. Every time you press on the gas, or idle, you'll be the first to know how much carbon monoxide you'e producing. You'll learn what bicyclists and pedestrians experience every day as you drive by. Buy the Monoxitube today and face your exhaust.

The Monoxitube idea draws attention to the toxic exhaust of gas-powered cars. If people had to bear the total cost of their vehicles, which includes pollution, they would be more likely to seek out transportation alternatives that don't harm others. They would drive (and idle) less and try other ways to get where they need to go: carpooling, taking the bus, walking, telecommuting, and more.

I'm not advocating limiting freedom of movement. To the contrary, in my ideal life of living in a walkable neighborhood--where driving is unnecessary--walking provides more freedom than driving since it's free, doesn't require parking, and you don't have to make a turn signal when you want to go left (no tickets for pedestrians!).

Through the Monoxitube idea, I'm advocating freedom of movement based on polite interaction with other humans, and common courtesy involves not leaving a cloud of carbon monoxide as one passes by another's home. It is my hope that people will read about the Monoxitube and try low-emission transport options and seek out and support walkable neighborhoods where you don't have to leave the neighborhood to breathe fresh air.
