Solving the problem of congestion in city centers by applying Congestion Pricing - simulation in Belgrade
The problem of traffic congestion is one of the most significant global problems in the world. Numerous negative effects of congestion affect both the users themselves and people who are not direct participants in the traffic. The most significant negative effects caused by traffic congestion are greater time losses, increased emission of harmful gases, greater number of traffic accidents, noise, etc. Congestion charging is one of the measures that affects the reduction of traffic congestion by influencing the transport requirements of users. So far, congestion charging has been implemented in several cities around the world. Although it has proven to be very effective in solving congestion problems, it has not been widely used due to its poor acceptability. Within this paper, the concept of congestion charging is presented, an overview of experiences from cities where it is applied, and the results of simulation of congestion charging in Belgrade are presented.
