Changing the Paradigm of Traffic Impact Studies: How Typical Traffic Studies Inhibit Sustainable Transportation

The practice of focusing on automobile level of service (LOS) and traffic flow as part of environmental clearance has, ironically, actually inhibited sustainable transportation, that is, transit, bicycling, and walking. This paper describes the problems with current practices and suggests how transportation studies should be used to improve mobility and livability for all.
