L.A. warns homebuilders, but not residents, of traffic pollution health risks

For five years, Los Angeles has been issuing health advisories to housing developers, warning of the dangers of building near freeways.

Planning commissioners axed a provision to require traffic pollution signs on some new, multifamily developments from an environmental ordinance on the grounds that it would burden developers and hurt market values.
