The potential effect of intensive traffic on detrimental element contents in soil and vegetation was investigated in the vicinity of a selected section (1 km) of a highly frequented highway as affected by the distance from the roadway (1 m, 35 m, and 70 m). Aqua regia and 0.11 mol/L acetic acid soluble contents of As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Mo, Ni, Pb, and Zn in soils and total contents of these elements in the aboveground biomass of Achillea millefolium and Vicia cracca were determined. The main physicochemical properties of the soils were determined as well. The element contents did not exceed the maximum permissible limits for both soils and plants (evaluated as fodder crops). Some of the elements were tightly related to atmospheric deposition caused by traffic. For example, Pb and Zn concentrations in soils tended to decrease with increasing distance from the roadway.
