ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES OF (AUTO)MOBILITY CONTROL

ECONOMISCHE GEVOLGEN VAN MOBILITEITSBEHEERSING

Road traffic has a considerable impact on the environment, contributing, amongst other things, to acidification, climate change, noise nuisance and transection of habitats and landscapes. Because of the perceived need to rehabilitate our environment, in the last few years governmental policy in the Netherlands has started to include measures aimed at controlling the growth of car traffic. Environment and transport policy makers would of course, be confronted with a major dilemma if mobility control - for instance a choice for a cleaner environment - were achieved at the expense of the economy: or if the development of the economy and transport were to exceed the carrying capacity of the environment. This report presents a study into the understanding of the economic consequences of mobility control. (A)
