ABSTRACT
Particulate matter (PM) is one of the striking pollutants and causes appreciable
degradation of the environment and therefore the quality of life of the population.
Formation of particulate matter resulting from vehicular traffic is a problem especially
within large cities. Exhaust gases contain large amounts of gaseous and solid pollutants
when considering the use of internal combustion engines. These include in particular the
presence of large numbers of extremely fine particle fractions, which can remain in the
air for a long period of time, easily penetrate and attack the respiratory tract and
damage, impact on the health of humans. Particulate matter with a greater aerodynamic
diameter originates previously from different parts of cloths road and vehicles. The
subject of this presentation is monitoring particulate matter along the cycle of its
creation alongside urban roads and non-urban roads and an evaluation of fraction ratios
PM10, PM2.5 and PM1 with regard to meteorological conditions and traffic volume.

Keywords: particulate matter /PM/, meteorological conditions, traffic volume,
