METHODS OF TRAFFIC LIMITATION IN URBAN AREAS

The article reviews the methods that are available for the limitation of traffic growth in cities. Some 35 methods are discussed which can be divided into three categories:- traffic restriction, in which legal or physical means are used to prevent certain travel desires; traffic restraint, in which certain travel desires are discouraged rather than prevented; and, traffic avoidance, in which action is taken to prevent the original travel desires from arising. Examples are given of a number of studies that indicate the effectiveness of the various methods of traffic limitation. /TRRL/
