Traffic jams, and traffic jams are again, just a thing of the past. However, as soon as the coronamaatregelen continue to be made more flexible, fewer people will travel by public transport. It will be more crowded on the way over to the coronacrisis? Experts estimate that such a vessel will not be running.
Earlier this month, the traffic levels are already at about 75% of the normal level. If the call is to make it possible to work from home immediately is due to expire, you will not only have the usual amount of traffic back, but it might be busy out on the road.'driving a Car, it is just guess work'
it is expected that a large number of the people who would normally be using public transport to travel, there are now going to choose to get in the car to deal with. In this way, they are as much as possible to others in contact with it.
"People are going to switch to a form of transport that reduce the risk of infection as low as possible," wrote consulting firm McKinsey earlier this month. "People own a car these will be going now."
"What the car is concerned, it is just guess work," says Niels van Oort, the transport expert of the Smart Public Transport to Lab at the Delft university of technology. "A lot will depend on what governments and companies to decide with regard to working hours, travelling outside of rush hour and work from home. However, it is very important to us here, but it's always nice to be considered."
Rico Luman, the ING economics department subscribes to this. "In this situation, the government can encourage with increased incentive to work from home and other shifts to come, so that the movement of the day spread."

Nevertheless, it is expected Luman is not the usual level of traffic likely to return. This is not because more and more people in the home will continue to operate, but because of the economic decline is inevitable.
"There won't be more traffic congestion created because of the avoid congestion in the first place, which is linked to the level of economic activity, and that has been purchased. We will have for the next year at the old levels are back."
Even if it is not directly the same files are attached there are drawbacks to the increased use of the car. Travel is not only less efficient, because workers there are, more than ever, will only be in the car, it is also less comfortable.
People have to do more with the current cars
and That is further enhanced by the fact that people, because of the coronacrisis probably more on their current vehicle and keep driving.
"The sales of new cars are falling, and more and more people will be buying later. Drivers remained, on average, longer in their car and drive it to work is invigorating. Moreover, this is happening now, even as deliveries of the new car's substantially delayed," said Luman.
That is, in addition, more and more people are now prefer to using the car to travel to ensure that they are on the look out for affordable options.
This trend has been reflected in the sale of second-hand cars, to be released in april, the half of less likely to have decreased the sale of new cars. Also, taking into account the first four months of the year, and the damage isn't too bad. Until last april, there was a 6.8 per cent reduction in pre-owned cars to private individuals, to be sold, according to figures from the CONTROL VERSION.
