Starting from a new study on carbon monoxide and noise pollution levels in an important crossroads area of the city of Sibiu, Romania, the current paper uses the data to compare with data obtained during past studies carried out on the same area, allowing an assessment of the evolution of the two pollution indicators over time. The recent study, carried out over a two-week period in November 2017 both during the peak morning hours and at midday, combined a video-based vehicle count with measurements of the carbon monoxide and of the noise level, respectively. The data comparison reveals not only a worsening of the pollution levels in the centre of Sibiu over the past few years and should allow the determining of the best methods and means for reducing the level of the pollutants, possibly in correlation with the improvement of the road traffic conditions.
