VERKEHRSMOBILITAET. MEINUNGEN - ANALYSEN - PROGNOSEN.

TRAFFIC MOBILITY, IN THE SENSE OF CHANGES OF LOCATION, HAS INCREASED IN THE PAST DISTINCTLY, MAINLY AS A RESULT OF MOTORIZATION, INCREASE IN FREE TIME AND RAISED ECONOMIC STANDARDS. ON AVERAGE, THERE ARE ALREADY ALMOST TWO PASSENGER JOURNEYS PER INHABITANT AND WEEKDAY WITH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE TRANSPORT. ON THE BASIS OF A DOUBLE-TIER ESTIMATE, BASED ON THE NARROW LINEAR RELATION BETWEEN THE SPECIFIC NUMBER OF JOURNEYS OF INHABITANTS AND THE LEVEL OF MOTORIZATION, MOBILITY IN THE FEDERAL GERMAN REPUBLIC SHOULD INCREASE TO ABOUT 2.4 PASSENGER JOURNEYS BY 1985, AND ITS SATURATION LEVEL SHOULD BE ABOUT 2.7 PASSENGER JOURNEYS PER INHABITANT AND WEEKDAY. COMPARED WITH THE PRESENT TIME THIS WOULD MEAN AN INCREASE OF ABOUT 50%. THE CAUSES OF MOBILITY AND ITS DEVELOPMENT TRENDS SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED IN GREATER DETAIL THAN IN THE PAST. IN ADDITION, THERE SHOULD BE FURTHER CRITICAL ANALYSIS ON ITS NECESSITY AND THE RESULTING RESTRICTIONS.
