TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT OF CHANGES IN THE FUTURE USE AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE AUTOMOBILE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM. VOLUME II: TECHNICAL REPORT

The report consists of three parts. The first part contains background information, a description of the elements of the automobile transportation system, Base Case projections, and delineation of the policy alternatives that were considered. These chapters provide a baseline of present and future automobile system characteristics that serve as the frame of reference for policy analysis. The second part of the report contains analyses of policy options in each of the five issue areas--energy, environment, safety, mobility, and cost and capital. Each chapter is similarly organized and contains a discussion of issues, a summary of present policy, a statement of policy options, and analysis of effects and impacts. The third part of the report is a survey of expected technological developments in the near term (through 1985) and in the far term (to 2000 and beyond). A summary of major findings and a detailed table of contents is included in each chapter.
