Still stuck in traffic : coping with peak-hour traffic by Anthony Downs

By Anthony Downs

Congested roads waste commuters' time, price them cash, and degrade the surroundings. so much american citizens agree that traffic jam is the main challenge of their communities—and it in basic terms seems getting worse. during this revised and multiplied variation of his landmark paintings Stuck in Traffic, Anthony Downs examines the advantages and prices of varied anticongestion options. Drawing on an important physique of analysis via transportation specialists and land-use planners, he counters environmentalists and highway lobbyists alike through explaining why possible easy recommendations, similar to increasing public transit or increasing roads, have accidental effects that cancel out their obvious benefits. He argues that whereas there can be a few measurable earnings from expanding housing densities, such a lot different land-use recommendations have little impression. certainly, the main robust recommendations, together with better fuel taxes, elevated public investment for transit, and road tolls, also are the least palatable politically. St ill caught in site visitors contains new fabric at the reasons of congestion, its dynamics, and its relative occurrence in numerous elements of the rustic. In transparent and lifelike phrases, Downs seeks to discover why traffic jam has turn into a part of sleek American lifestyles and the way it may be stored below control.
