The patients have said that if there are complications with the carmakers then they will deal with the metropolitan governments. The government plans to reduce air pollution but creating more intersections such that traffic flow is smooth. They will also plant trees to reduce the smog. They will allow asthma patients to borrow with free inhalers and receive medical check-ups to prevent symptoms. The seven carmakers said that they would pay something like 400-500 million yen but the patients requested 3 billion yen.
