The editor of Smart Highways, Paul Hutton has explained the traffic congestion levels in Britain to the audience of his local radio station, BBC Essex.
Appearing on the Drivetime show, Paul was questioned about the INRIX traffic survey suggesting that the UK’s roads are the third-most congested in Europe and was asked what we could do to change things.
Paul gave his opinion that Britain is actually quite good at managing congestion because of its long history of innovation in intelligent transport systems but that being a small island with lots of people makes the job difficult.
He touched on road policy, traffic modelling, ADAS and council commitments to actively managing the roads.
