Traffic congestion is one of the biggest challenges of modern societies. It comes at huge individual and social costs, and makes the life of many million people miserable. Worldwide congestion costs are estimated at about $1 trillion per year, and traffic is expected to only become worse over the next years and decades. The “Fundamental Law of Road Congestion” implies that building or widening new roads, or other supply-based policies, will not solve the problem.

Fortunately, technological advances allow us to largely eliminatecongestion through efficient congestion pricing. In the simplest approach, an independent system operator models demand and computes real- time prices for road use to maximize the value of road use. Prices on congested road segments are set to induce demand to eliminate the congestion and maximize throughput. User-friendly computer apps armed with this price information then guide consumers in making transport choices consistent with their preferences. Equity and privacy concerns can be effectively dealt with.(Peter Cramton, 2018)
