This essential two-volume collection contains the most influential articles written over the past eight decades that contribute to an understanding of the economics of traffic congestion.
The first volume explores the classic contributions on congestion and road pricing and includes papers in dynamic models and second-best congestion pricing.

Introduction. Traffic congestion is an economically important problem affecting cities everywhere. An average American household travels annually ab miles on roads and spends about 15% of income on road transportation.
1 Incongestion in the US caused around billion hours of travel delay and billion gallons of extra fuel consumption with a total cost of $ billion Cited by: In order to analyze the traffic congestion of urban road network, the data preprocessing method is improved, and the three-dimensional spatio-temporal state data is transformed into one-dimensional data, and the spatio-temporal constraint is added on the basis of FP-Growth algorithm to achieve more efficient mining congestion propagation law.
Traffic congestion always have negative effects on lives and environment. To quantify these negative effects is complex and multivaried. For congestion to be mitigated or eliminated, gathering of information on traffic incidents such as state of the road, congestion spots, and volume of traffic on each road cannot be overemphasized.

Alleviating Traffic Congestion: Alternatives to Road Pricing I am a believer but I am also a realist. In an ideal world, full efficiency would be achieved by marginal (social) cost pricing, and equity through lump-sum redistribution.
In such an ideal world, travelers would make efficient choices since they would face the. The first volume explores the classic contributions on congestion and road pricing and includes papers in dynamic models and second-best congestion pricing.
The second volume analyses ownership arrangements such as private roads, investment and financing, urban land use, social acceptability and distributional aspects of road pricing. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books.

This article examines urban highway congestion pricing in the instance in which it is not possible to levy a congestion toll on a major portion of the urban road system. This case is pertinent because of technical and/or political constraints. The article uses economic theory and numerical examples to show that the optimum second-best toll can vary appreciably from the optimal tolls in a Cited by: TTI publishes annual reports that detail the assessment of road congestion levels in the 68 urban areas.

Roadway Congestion in Major Urban Areas: to }AMES W. HANKS, ]R., AND TIMOTHY J. LOMAX The results of the third year of analysis of a 6-year research effort focused on quantifying urban mobility are described.
Roadway information is provided for 39 urban areas representing a geo graphic cross section throughout the country. The prediction model of road congestion diffusion is established by integrating Internet traffic data and FCD data. To provide a theoretical basis for solving urban traffic congestion, the experimental results show that the prediction results coincide with the actual state of the Internet road conditions, which proves the feasibility and Cited by: 1.

This would not change the Roadway Congestion Index. Traffic Level of Service Calculation Methods Level of service (LOS) is a term used to qualitatively describe the operating conditions of a roadway based on factors such as speed, travel time, maneuverability, delay, and safety.

We estimate efficiency and TFP growth for two measures of congestion and two measures of the monetary value of congestion for the largest 88 contiguous cities in the U.S. over the period – Using stochastic frontier analysis we find that the efficiency scores for congestion and the associated ranking of cities is sensitive to the measure of by: 4.
