CONSUMPTION OF ENERGY IN ROAD TRANSPORT; TECHNICAL AND INDUCED EXPENDITURE

ENERGIEGEBRUIK BIJ HET WEGTRANSPORT - OVER TECHNISCHE EN GEINDUCEERDE VERBRUIKEN

The car satisfies diffuse transport needs. Political groups however only consider the nuisance caused by motor vehicles. Possible improvements are often hindered by regulations. In view of the threatening energy scarcity energy consumption must be decreased. Air resistance and the effects of rolling resistance of vehicles can be reduced and a good road system is needed. Measures against pollution and noise can be energy-consuming. Petrol and the internal combustion engine remain the most satisfactory. /TRRL/
