Abstract

Large urban areas have in the past frequently suffered from transportation congestion. It has been recorded that in the first century vehicular traffic, except for chariots and official vehicles, was prohibited from entering Rome during the hours of daylight. While congestion has existed in urban areas the predominantly pedestrian mode of transport prevented the problem from becoming too serious until the new forms of individual transport of the twentieth century began to demand greater highway capacity.
