Mitigating traffic congestion on urban roads, with paramount importance in urban development and reduction of energy consumption and air pollution, depends on our ability to foresee road usage and traffic conditions pertaining to the collective behavior of drivers, raising a significant question: to what degree is road traffic predictable in urban areas?   Deprived urban areas often contain workplaces with health hazards because of toxic products, injury and ergonomic hazards, noise, external pollution, and traffic generation. 22, 23 The problems in “cottage industries” are increased because of inappropriate zoning, town planning, and location of industrial activities. 24 The mix of Cited by: good traffic management and segregation they can be sustained as the core of a more mobile, but safe and sustainable, urban transport system. In addressing that quandary, it must be recog-nized that cities differ greatly in economic, social, and spatial characteristics. Moreover, any indi-vidual city will change its characteristics over Size: KB. Determinants of Traffic Congestion. An examination (regression analysis) of the peak period traffic indexes indicates an association between higher urban area population densities and greater traffic congestion, with a coefficient of determination (R2) of , which is significant at the one percent level of confidence (Figure 2).

2 Introduction In recent years an extensive body of literature has emerged on the definition, measurement and analysis of poverty.1 Much of this literature focuses on analyzing poverty at the national level, or spatial disaggregation by general categories of urban or rural areas with.
