Traffic Congestion

A big global problem

There is no shortage of resources, from Government think tanks, the worlds media, and lobbyists. These are not obscure reports - these are front page, major media news stories.

They are all saying the same thing. Congestion is getting worse, getting much worse. Congestion kills millions through air pollution (now also a Covid-19 transport medium according to reports) and costs drivers and governments trillions.

They are all saying the same thing. To fix traffic congestion, we need to dynamically price roads. This is the solution, not building more roads. Push demand off busy roads with pricing strategies.

The question is how? Monitoring the vehicles is the biggest problem, and privacy the second biggest problem.

Neomatrix has solutions to both these major areas.

Below are just some of probably many thousands of articles covering why traffic congestion is a problem, and what we should look to do, to address this problem.
