Traffic management measures are aimed at improving the safe and efficient flow of traffic. Traditionally, traffic management has focused on optimising the throughput of vehicles at intersections. This scope has now widened significantly to incorporate other modes (public transport, cyclists and pedestrians) and policy priorities, such as prioritising sustainable modes at traffic lights or managing traffic in such a way to reduce vehicular emissions. Alignment with broader air quality, climate, and sustainable mobility objectives has become a key feature in modern traffic management.
POLIS provides a platform for its members to share experiences in traffic management through the Working Group on Traffic Efficiency.
