"How much traffic would you like in your community?"
Today, utilizing new technologies, traffic can be reduced.
Of course, there are still economic and political tradeoffs to evaluate. But logistically, the technical and legal framework exists to enable a powerful toolbox of traffic reducing strategies, including:
Smart traffic signals with transit priority
Electric bikes and scooters with shared fleets
Road tolling and congestion pricing
Carpool matching and automated enforcement
Behavioral incentives and equity programs
With the coming deployment of autonomous vehicles,
our traffic will get worse
because more cars will be on the road.
But by taking action and using new tools,
communities can set traffic at their desired volume.
