Rapid increases in ownership and usage of private cars in Europe and the dependence on road for a substantial proportion of freight movement have led to increasingly high levels of congestion with all the associated problems of economic loss, environmental damage and safety.

Nonetheless, common trends and issues are apparent in Europe in both the setting of objectives and the techniques used
