Imagine Cities |AUTOMOBILE TRANSPORT
In the U.S., gridlock costs the economy $121 billion per year. In 2011, Ford's former C.E.O. stated that there were 800 million cars on the road. By 2050 there will be around 2-4 billion. Today, 61% of oil consumed is transport-related which is the leading contributor of global warming. In cities across the world, innovators are creating better options to reduce car ownership while "self-organizing" theory argues that a small reduction in car-usage would have a dramatic effect on congestion.
