‘Change of thinking’ needed to alter traffic’s environmental impacts

A new survey of British drivers suggests that three quarters of people are worried about the environmental impact of traffic, but only a minority prepared to change routes to alleviate the problem.

Kapsch TrafficCom asked people about what traffic would likely be after Coronavirus restrictions are lifted and most think jams will return.

As research suggests there’s a link between air quality and Coronavirus severity, finding more environmentally-responsible routes seems like a good idea, but fewer than two-fifths of people said they consider cleanest route when setting out on a journey.

Steve Parsons, Head of UK Sales Kapsch TrafficCom said, “Smart navigation networks are a key technology for fundamentally reducing traffic jams and pollution on roads,” and added that “the situation on UK roads does not necessarily have to remain at an unsatisfactory level. We have the tools to resolve the challenges and we can create a more sustainable path to a better future.”
