Abstract This paper reviews the environmental and health impacts of private motorization in Albania since the fall of communism and the failures of the public sector to effectively control these impacts. The paper focuses on the capital, Tirana, which has almost one-third of the national population, most of the national wealth, twice the rate of car ownership in the rest of the country, and the bulk of the adverse impacts related to motorisation.
