Transportation Health and Safety Policies - Beyond Automobile Crashes and Climate Change

This policy analysis provides a broad view of health and safety impacts of traffic management strategies. Safety objectives of traffic management measures typically revolve around the crash reduction. Long term health threats caused by vehicle emissions are often ignored. In this policy paper, the authors provide an overall picture of health effects of air pollutants emissions, and present a brief history of existing disjoint between environmental, health, and mobility objectives. The authors then provide two case studies showing how transportation operation and management measures could impact public health. In conclusion, the authors provide several insights useful for policymakers to consider health impacts of traffic management measures beyond what affects automobile crashes and climate change.
