Ending Traffic Jams Without New Roads

trafficTraffic is pretty near the top of the list of the most evil things in the world.  Traffic makes people angry and look here buy canada in viagra unhappy. Traffic wastes a colossal amount of fuel.  Traffic encourages the construction of massive, expensive and wasteful roadways.  But there's no good solution.  Not yet anyways. 

New research coming out of the University of Texas shows that there might be a way to avoid all the viagra discount prices anger and waste that traffic brings on our society, and all they need is to put an RFID tag in your car.

Kara Kockelman has created a computer model that shows that per-mile tolls for congested roads at high-traffic times of the day will increase rush-hour traffic speeds by about 25 miles per hour.

The solution is an elegant one because it decreases traffic without added infrastructure.   It's inelegant because it raises all kinds of freaky privacy issues and also the technology would make it possible for the police to automatically give you a ticket if you ever drive over the speed limit.  And that would be lame.

If I drive at uncongested times or on uncongested roads, do I get a rebate on tolls? Probably not.

I would suggest instead that registration fees be adjusted drastically to favor motorcycles and smaller vehicles in general. I drive a tractor-trailer and see the effect that large vehicles have on traffic congestion. If motorcycles were allowed to ultram buy cheap split lanes, they could reduce backups by increasing density rather than volume.

Another solution, (one that I have gotten my employer used to), is to just shift your work hours earlier or later than most other people so that I avoid rush hour. Of course as more people do it, the effectiveness diminishes.

Also, there could be a voluntary initiative to have people work different 5 days each week between Monday and cheepest levitra Saturday. In certain white collar jobs, this could be done and each day's rush hour would be less severe.
