Traffic 2042—a more global perspective

By J. Kenworthy


A discussion of a paper entitled "Traffic 2042: Mosaic of a Vision" by H. H. Topp, published in this issue of this journal, is presented. This paper provides a wider perspective of what transportation may be like in the year 2042 than the vision given in Topp's essay. The discusser provides an overview of key transport features of cities in high and low income regions to temper the optimism expressed in the original paper for technological innovations solving problems such as energy consumption, emissions and traffic fatalities. Factors such as wealth, urban density, quality of public transport and income spend on passenger transport, will affect how traffic develops in different regions
