Why is it important?

This paper examines the difference between segregated traffic with mixed-mode traffic environments. the findings indicate that faster traffic for which decision-makers as also the commuters are the advocates to create and build such infrastructure,


I hope this article makes people think about the hazards of faster commutes and faster modes I hope that the study creates interest and awareness and people are more informed while agreeing to a change since its the taxpayer's money which gets spent on creating such facilities. It is an issue that should touch every single human being more than anything else, and if nothing else, I hope you find this article thought-provoking.
