A Review on Impact of Non-Motorized Transport on Traffic Flow
International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology
With the advancement in automobile sector it has been observedfrom the past couple of years that maximum countries are getting dominated for using Motorized vehicle (MV) as their primary mode of transport and MVs are penetrated in every urban area. Factors influencing mode choice are journey time, safety and overall quality of transportation system. Hence they are evaluated from time to time to make the system reliable and to satisfy the demands of the future needs. But unfortunately
... tunately Non-Motorized Vehicle (NMT) is neglected in the planning of transportation system, which triggers the need to revolutionize the NMT completely. Due to increase in traffic of motorized vehicles on the road, environment witness adverse effect, increase of carbon footprints, climatic changes and contribution towards pollution; also the level of serviceability is hampered as there is limited width and lane available for MV on urban roads compared to NMTs which require relative less space for facilities including roadways and Parking bays also less road maintenance This review paper aims to represented different works, studies and implementation of policies which will highlight the needs of NMT and their supporting infrastructure.
