This discussion of the transportation and urban planning issues within Connecticut and their relationship to controlling automobile usage, also documents a study which evaluates the possible application of traffic restraint concepts within the state. The feasibility of traffic restraint is achieved by comparing the knowledge about restraint measures from a literature review (first phase of the study), with situations in Connecticut. The study considered the automobile related problems of congestion and parking, as well as regional land-use plans, environmental objectives, and public transportation plans. The project focused on where restraint might be considered in transportation planning.
