ANALYSIS OF THE FUTURE EFFECTS OF FUEL SHORTAGE AND INCREASED SMALL CAR USAGE UPON TRAFFIC DEATHS AND INJURIES
The Automotive Energy Efficiency Project is concerned with the examination of technological options for improving the fuel efficiency of highway vehicles. This examination includes an analysis of the effects of existing and proposed mandated standards of fuel economy, safety and emissions on automobile design, estimation of the impacts of marketing and economic forces on automobile sales, and overall projections of fuel consumption for proposed automotive design alternatives. Also of interest are related effects on future air quality, highway safety, and on the costs of owning and operating automobiles.
