In the U.S., the population grew 20% from 1982 to 2001. In that same time span, traffic in urban centers increased by 236%. Since the amount of cars on the road is expected to double by 2020, real solutions need to be identified that will help reduce traffic in urban centers.


Propose a solution that will reduce the traffic in U.S. cities, and takes into account the fact that more cars will be on the road in the future. Describe:

1) How your solution will reduce traffic.

2) What specific resources you would need to implement your proposal.

CRITERIA: For this challenge, solutions should focus on managing traffic from motor vehicles instead of motivating commuters to use alternate forms of transportation.

    Submissions will be graded on the following criteria:
  • Meets Deliverables
  • Creativity
  • Clarity
