PERSONAL MOBILITY AND TRANSPORT POLICY

A social policy on transport must be directed towards the needs of human beings moving from place to place in their daily lives, and particularly to the needs of those who have difficulty in doing so. It must particularly favour those modes which minimise noise, pollution, accidents, congestion and the reduction in the ability of other people to move around. In order to achieve these goals, firstly, considerable political will is required. Secondly, A considerable amount of the mobility currently enjoyed by the motorist must be surrendered, for the level of personal mobility of people without cars can not otherwise realistically be raised. The only fair solution is an equitable transport policy, based on social and environmental goals as well as those of efficiency and economy. For the covering abstract of the conference see /TRRL/
