Abstract
Evaluation of highway toll collectors indicates excessive exposure to carbon monoxide whenever the mean hourly vehicle count exceeds 300 vehicles. Carbon monoxide exposure is found to correlate with impaired behavioral performance suggesting that workers respond less quickly and less accurately.
