Despite these near roadway and border-crossing studies, the relationships between traffic densities, meteorological parameters, spatial and temporal variability, and UFP number size distribution near roadways in the border regions are still not well understood. –Mexico border area has experienced a surge in population and traffic volume in the past several decades. The local residents and border travelers are exposed to high levels of vehicular air pollutants. –Mexico border region are needed. The current study comprehensively and systematically assessed the vehicular UFP level and other vehicular pollutants near an international bridge in Laredo to improve the understanding of sources in this region during the Christmas holiday season when the maximum variation of traffic density was observed and provided valuable data to investigate urban UFP profiles.
