The True and Total Cost of Transportation
BALANCE RESEARCH

Balance Research studies and reports on the long-term outlook for transportation and the resources it uses.

Highway usage is very attractive because most road space is provided by governments with little expectation of financial return while the costs of significant harm and losses due to traffic are borne by the wider community, rather than the users.
