ACEM (the Motorcycle Industry in Europe) has released details of a study that states if 10% of car drivers would give up their car for a motorcycle or a scooter, traffic congestion would be reduced by 40%.
The study, conducted Transport & Mobility Leuven and the University of Leuven on one of Belgium’s most congested routes as it was felt typical of Europe’s densest urban areas. Suggested that is 25% of all commuting trips were made on a motorcycle, then ‘congestion would be a bad memory’.
Jacques Compagne, ACEM Secretary General: “The European Mobility Week was a good opportunity to look at solutions for our congestion problems. FEBIAC’s study demonstrates that Powered Two Wheelers are an extraordinary resource for easing jams, making traffic more fluid and generally improving the quality of life in our cities. Policy makers can learn a good deal from this paper.”
