Traffic Congestion Costs PowerPoint Presentation

  1. 1. Traffic Congestion
  2. 2. Traffic congestion at Sao Paulo. Sao Paulo has the world's worst traffic jams.
  3. 3. Congestion on a city road in Moscow
  4. 4. A traffic jam in the Himalayas (Garhwal hills, India)
  5. 5. Bangkok is notorious for its traffic congestion.
  6. 6. Congestion on a street in Taipei
  7. 7. Congestion caused by evacuees fleeing Hurricane Rita. Traffic in all lanes of the highway is traveling in the same direction.
  8. 8. Traffic Jam in Delhi, India
  9. 9. Time loss due to congestion More than 500 million passengers travel by road every day, worldwide. If a passenger loses 2 minute everyday , in traffic congestion, total annual time loss is 700,000 YEARS !!!
  10. 10. Time loss due to congestion Yes, Unbelievable, but true. We lose man time equivalent to 700,000 years , every year, because of traffic congestion. Calculation : Number of road passengers / day = 500,000,000 Average time loss / person per day = 2 minute Total time loss / day = 1,000,000,000 minutes Total time loss for a year = 365,000,000,000 minutes = 365,000,000,000 / ( 60 * 24 * 365 ) = 700,000 YEARS
  11. 11. Monetary loss due to congestion Traffic jams cost Moscow USD 1.3 billion a year. Traffic congestion costs the South African business USD 18 billion a year. Traffic congestion in Dhaka eats up USD 3 billion a year.
  12. 12. Monetary loss due to congestion Traffic Congestion cost of US cities ranges between USD 35 billion to USD 48 billion. US loses roughly 2 % of GNP in traffic congestion UK loses 5 % of GNP
  13. 13. Traffic Congestion Costs
  14. 14. Traffic Congestion
  15. 15. Losses due to Traffic Congestion • Wasting time of motorists and passengers. • Fuel loss. • Loss of pay for employees. • Loss of life due to not reaching hospital in time. • Increased road accidents due to over speed taken to make up the lost time.
  16. 16. Losses due to Traffic Congestion • Increased carbon dioxide emission. • More atmospheric pollution. • More diseases due to increased pollution. • Increased mental tension for passengers.
  17. 17. Losses due to Traffic Congestion • Increased cost of travel. • Increased cost of transporting products. • Increased cost of doing business.
  18. 18. Losses due to Traffic Congestion • Wear and tear on vehicles leading to more frequent repairs and replacements. • Stressed and frustrated motorists, encouraging road rage and reduced health of motorists
  19. 19. Ambulance trapped in Traffic Jam
  20. 20. Vehicle pollution
  21. 21. Traffic Congestion & Road accidents 1.2 million people are killed in road accidents every year. Over speed resulting from time lost in traffic jams is a major cause for road accidents. At least 120,000 lives can be saved, every year, if traffic congestions are reduced.
  22. 22. Road Accidents
  23. 23. Traffic congestion detector in Germany
  24. 24. How to reduce Traffic Congestion • Infrastructure development. • Express highways to be built. • Private participation in road development. • Low budget development of junctions. • Reduction of Junctions. • Widening of busy roads.
  25. 25. How to reduce Traffic Congestion • More public transport systems. • Develop waterways wherever possible. • Expand Railway network. • Implement Metro Rails in Metros and big cities. • Promote Suburban railways.
  26. 26. How to reduce Traffic Congestion • Promote Car pooling. • Urban planning and design. • Reversible lanes ( certain sections of highway operate in the opposite direction on different times of the day/ days of the week, to match asymmetric demand ) • Free / subsidized public transport systems
