Amongst the different kinds of pollutants which are responsible for pollutions, Vehicles Discharge is one of the major problem to bio-communities. So, the present investigation study was done on Vehicles Discharge in terms of their effects on the growth rate of plants, Vigna aconitifolia and also on soil fertility.  For scientific study of effect of this Vehicle discharge, the experiential setup was made in which site for sample collection sites were selected, red soil and clay pots of same size taken.  Moth bean is an important kharif season Legume crop of Maharashtra, India. Vehicles discharges effects on the growth rate of plants, Vigna aconitifolia and soil fertility.  Bioremediation study carried by using of cow dung in soil which enhanced the growth of experimental plants, Vigna aconitifolia which is one of the major  crop in India with high nutritive values for human beings.  Also survey has done on two-wheelers rider’s to recognize of their health complications due to different-Vehicles pollutions. Soil analysis reports before and after the experiments perform shows grates variations in its physical and chemical properties.  Thus, study concluded that Vehicles Discharge shows affect on growth ret of plant and life of human beings directly and indirectly. Control major and recommendation were specified through this study.
