THE EFFECTS OF CONGESTION ON DRIVERS' BEHAVIOUR

The paper reports on a study by the Department of Transport which examined individuals' responses to the increases in journey time, queuing and journey variability, predicted to arise from greater congestion. It will report on the perceived benefits drivers attributed to their responses, the thresholds at which drivers begin to suppress trips and the differences in the rates of trip and mileage suppression by journey purpose, length and origin. For the covering abstract see IRRD 880168.
