This means that you car is producing air-pollution and there are regulations on how much pollution per car can be produced. Hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide are produced through the tailpipe as well as emissions that are produced from evaporation of fuel. You can read up on these emissions at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automobile_emissions_control
