WHAT IS INDUCED TRAFFIC?

The purpose of this paper is to spell out, as clearly as possible, what is meant by "induced" traffic and to relate its various components to the full range of behavioral responses by travelers. In doing so, it draws upon the recently published (December 1994) report by the Standing Advisory Committee on Trunk Road Assessment (SACTRA) and response by the UK Government. The paper concludes with some of the implications of induced/suppressed traffic for current methods of forecasting and evaluation of road investment, which are covered in more detail by subsequent authors.
