PLANNING FOR THE AUTOMOBILE IN THE SCAG REGION: AN EVALUATION OF ALTERNATIVES FOR REDUCING AUTOMOBILE EMISSIONS AND FUEL CONSUMPTION
The report describes the results of a one-year analysis of alternatives for reducing automotive emissions and fuel consumption in Southern California. The analysis covers a variety of regulatory techniques, such as mandatory inspection and maintenance, emissions and fuel economy standards, emergency smog controls, and gasoline rationing. Several pricing mechanisms have also been studied, including gasoline taxes, parking surcharges, and vehicle registration taxes. Traffic control measures, such as ramp metering, preferential lanes, and signal synchronization are also considered. The report concludes that the most attractive program of all those studied is mandatory inspection and maintenance.
