Transportation is in the midst of several revolutions that will change how we travel,
thanks to years of environmental initiatives.
Reduced reliance on fossil fuels, and an emphasis on alternative transit, has become the golden standard going forward, but how well have countries adopted them?
Other solutions such as road widening or drivers fees have been attempted by some governments, however, these methods have proven to generate even more traffic and increased frustrations.
The paradigm of personal transportation needs to change. This means reducing the number of cars on the road in order to eliminate many of the effects that come with it, such as wasted time, stress, anger, all of which can impact family life.
The visualization demonstrates that car ownership and production is continuing to grow despite attempts at promoting public transportation. This increased growth also includes new electric vehicles of course, but does absolutely nothing to help reduce the traffic.
China is one country that has seen a considerable boom in both production and sales in the past year alone. While there are some countries who are reducing their car use, the major powers are continuing to grow, only briefly disrupted by the recession in 2008.
