To overcome traffic congestion, use the emergency lane

Ole Lykke


26 September 2013

Ole Lykke, PA transport expert, suggests that people who are car sharing should be able to use the highway emergency lane in order to overcome the increasing traffic congestion.

“This will mean a significantly increased capacity: On a two lane road it means an increase of 80 per cent rather than just 50 per cent. The extra cost for the enforcement of cameras, for instance, will be manageable as more dynamic signs will be installed […] besides the obvious benefits, we believe that it will boost the general car sharing. Studies show that once people have tried car sharing, they are more open to try it again,” says Ole Lykke.

Ole recommends that the Danish government and the municipality of Copenhagen, Denmark’s largest employers, encourage their staff to consider car-sharing: “Car sharing should be an important part of the recommendations made by Trængselskommissionen (The Danish Traffic Congestion Commission), and we hope that the Danish Minister of Transport will make the most of the existing opportunities.”
