In the course of a lifetime, an average European will spend two years stuck in traffic. In 2009, an American citizen lost 34 hours crawling through congestion – more than two-and-a-half times the amount of lost time in 1982. The consequent detrimental effect on our quality of life and our planet is amplified by two major trends: ongoing urbanization and a worldwide increase in the number of trips made and distances traveled. Policymakers are faced with the three-way dilemma of creating inclusive and equitable access to mobility, preserving quality of life and finding solutions compatible with constrained financial resources.
