. Wow, those Brits sure do love surveilling each other. Even as both Houses of Parliament conduct independent investigations on how nearly-constant CCTV monitoring is affecting British citizens, a group of researchers issued a report on future transportation policy that recommended the growing British traffic problem be solved by tracking every car on the road with GPS.

Winning or losing from dynamic bottleneck congestion pricing?: The distributional effects of road pricing with heterogeneity in values of time and schedule delay

One of the main causes of congestion is largely empty bus lanes. These (even for a small section) can restrict the capacity of a long road to perhaps just 60-70% of what it was before the lane was expensively installed. But as we know they are really interested in the cash cow camera income and congestion creation. Also bus occupancy can be as low as 5 or 6 from depot to depot during the whole of the day, less than you can fit in a people carrier. They are no more efficient than cars with say two or three in at all.

When the long standing joke (housing estate) Northern relief road is eventually built, it will also exit with planned traffic light control onto the A329, less than 500 metres from this junction, thus you will then have two sets of lights immediately before and after the M4 motorway bridge, as well as the Supermarket lights, meaning three sets of lights within 500 metres of this problem junction, causing further delays on the A329 which already tails back to the Woosehill roundabout you mention in your post at peak hour usage.

All things being equal, even if individuals are rubbernecking for the sake of rubbernecking, they are probably doing so owing to accidents. Many of these accidents could probably be easily avoided by individuals not excessively speeding, texting on the road, driving drunk, etc. I'm leery of saying that screens are the solution because screens may be burdensome or simply draw further attention to the accident or incident. Whereas screens may be helpful, they may cause other problems, e.g. the wind blowing the screens into the highway causing further accidents, delay in assisting highway patrons owing to the time necessary to set up screens, et al.

A Solution to Car Accident Rubbernecking: Setting …

How legitimate a phenomenon is rubbernecking? We're told time and again to slow down or move over a lane if there are stopped vehicles on the shoulder, especially if there are emergency lights -- of COURSE cars aren't going to pass by the accident site at full speed. Do enough folks actually slow down solely to take a look to cause traffic delays? Or is the much more plausible explanation -- that folks are following the rules of the road when cars are pulled over -- the correct one?

If it routinely takes more than one green cycle to get through more than a few signalized intersection in your town, city or county then congestion is certainly a problem. The same is true if it takes 50% to 100% longer to reach your destination at rush-hour (7-9 am; 4-6 pm) compared to say 10:00 am or 2:00 pm. Larger cities, or routinely assess level of service at signalized intersections or along road-highway segments. To see if this information is available online for your area then try doing a search using the key words "level of service" plus the name of your town, city or county. If the search fails then try contacting the local traffic management office which is usually in a public works or planning agency. Next, click on to find the MPO for your area and contact their staff about the availability of congestion information. Try the same with your .

You are probably aware of recently approved medium to large development projects; 50 to 100 residential units. Were any located near intersections that you believe to be congested? If yes, ask your local planning-zoning office for an opportunity to review the project file. Does the file contain a traffic impact study or any other document regarding level of service? If yes, then did the study comply with the criteria given earlier in this webpage for . If the study showed the project would cause level of service to drop to an "E" or "F" did the developer propose measures that would resolve the congestion problem? If not and approval was granted then whatever existing law is on the books isn't very effective or its not being enforced. If the file lacks a study then is there any other reference to congestion in the minutes or decision for the project? If not and you're convinced a nearby intersection is excessively congested then existing law is, again, ineffective.
