The huge cost of traffic congestion

Traffic congestionCleantech and sustainability is not only about energy efficiency and renewables, it is also about how we move around. So my latest piece for Cleantechies is about traffic congestion. Here is the introduction :

” According to a new study carried out by the English Centre of Economics and Business, traffic congestion in the United Kingdom, Germany and France cost each year up to 18,327 billion euros (around $24 billion). “

” (…) In these staggering amounts, both direct (wasted time and gas) and indirect (repercussion on the goods and services prices ) costs are incurred.” As usual, please enjoy and share !
