Abstract:

As the urban area has high population density and intensive anthropogenic activities, there are a great number of sources of heavy metals in cities, placing a considerable influence on human health. Emissions of heavy metals may come from domestic waste, chemical industry and transportation. These emissions have been continuously adding heavy metals to soils and they will remain present for many years even after the pollution sources have been removed. Therefore, it is indisputable that heavy metal concentrations in urban soils are significant environmental issue, and a large number of researches have been conducted all over the world. Traffic is one of the major sources for urban soil pollution. Roadside soils are important reservoir for the pollution directly from vehicle sources, which could come easily in contact with pedestrians and people residing within the vicinity of the roads either by suspended dust or by direct contact.
