MILES TO GO: EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN TRANSPORTATION POLICIES
This book offers a broad range of perspectives, directions, and policy options for transportation planners and political practitioners. The author compares various modes of American transportation with those of three western European countries that have historically been faced with greater resource constraints in terms of energy use, environmental and land-use controls, and financial commitments. He concludes that resource constraints are moving America toward a more European-like need for social efficiency in transportation, and offers some fundamental policy principles based on the European experience to guide the transition.
