With triple digit temperatures expected to remain in the Bay Area, a spare the air alert has been issued by the  Bay Area Air Quality Management District through Tuesday, June 11.

During a Spare the Air day, commuters are asked to avoid driving alone and instead take public transit, carpool, walk or bike to work.

Residents are also advised to cut back on any activities that cause pollution - such as driving, using oil-based paints, gasoline-powered lawn mowers, or household aerosol products like hair sprays. People who are sensitive to unhealthy air are advised to limit their time outdoors, particularly in the afternoon hours.
