Still stuck in traffic coping with peak-hour traffic congestion by Anthony Downs( )
16 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this revised and expanded edition of his work Stuck in Traffic, Anthony Downs examines the benefits and costs of various anticongestion strategies. Drawing on a significant body of research by transportation experts and land-use planners, he counters environmentalists and road lobbyists alike by explaining why seemingly simple solutions, such as expanding public transit or expanding roads, have unintended consequences that cancel out their apparent advantages. He argues that while there might be some measurable gains from increasing housing densities, most other land-use strategies have little effect. Indeed, the most powerful solutions, including higher gasoline taxes, increased public funding for transit, and highway tolls, are also the least palatable politically."--Jacket
