Integrated Traffic Management Concepts in Consideration of Urban Emissions Control Projects
Published June 16, 1994 by Verlag Des Verein Deutscher Ingenieure GmbH in Germany
Automotive caused CO and NOx emissions have been significantly reduced, the levels of CO2 continue to rise in Germany. To judge the development of emissions in the next 20 years, the paper outlines numerous parameters which must be addressed. After elaborating the scenario based on current trends, the affects of different policy packages which could cut emissions are described. These solutions involve combinations of fiscal instruments, regulations, infrastructure planning, information and public education.
Emissions problems cannot be effectively addressed with local or regional plans as they merely shift problems to another area. The solution lies in national and European-wide measures which will help attain a global reduction of CO2 emissions, coupled with decentralized implementation to take into account specific regional problems.
