what to do
What to do?

Alternative 1:

Capital intensive solutions

  • Give greater capacity to the road network to relieve congestion
  • Build massive rail transport systems (light rail- metro)

Alternative 2:

Change paradigms

Give priority to non motorised transport and bus-based public transport

Restrict indiscriminate automobile use

infrastructure solutions lead to greater automobile dependence
Infrastructure solutions lead to greater automobile dependence

Automobile dependence and Regional Economy

US Cities

Regional GDP per person (USD 1990)

Automobile Use (Km/year per person)

automobile dependent cities have more accidents
Automobile dependent cities have more accidents

Cities of United States have 66% more deaths in traffic accidents per person than peer cities in Europe and Asia, and 123% more than Toronto

Road Safety

US Cities

Fatalities in Road Accidents per 100,000 population (1990)

Automobile Use (Km/year per person)
