Scientists figured out how to get rid of traffic jams

Economists propose to establish a special rate.

A new model for the control of traffic which may appear in Europe in the near future.

In the latest issue of the journal Nature, European economists Peter Cramton, Axel Ockenfels and Richard Geddes described the concept, which offers a set of dynamic tariffs for the use of roads.

The amount you pay the driver, will depend not only on distance but also on the type of vehicle and exhaust emissions.

According to scientists, this will help reduce congestion and improve the environmental situation.

Technically, this duty can be applied today, because navigation systems and video recording allow you to track movement on the roads, experts say.

Of course, you will need to develop a system that will be an acceptable compromise between the collection of personal data and the protection of privacy.Peter Cramton

According to the data published in 2017 the British medical journal the Lancet, the exhaust gases on European roads cause the death of more than 40 thousand people annually.

In Russia, cities with the busiest roads are Moscow, Samara, Krasnoyarsk, Ufa and Voronezh.
