Money Wasted In City Traffic: The ‘Social’ Cost of Urban Immobility [INFOGRAPHIC]

At a whopping $60 billion, the surprising costs of traffic congestion in highly urban American cities could have very well swapped for the price of delivering basic social services to middle and low-income Americans. The hefty cost of congestion is looming to be among the most pressing challenges faced by first world economies, with equivalent social costs to boot.

“Stuck in City Traffic: Counting the ‘Social’ Cost of Urban Immobility” is a timely infographic that provides a meaningful picture of what is the impact of the cost of urban traffic congestion on our lives by presenting how all these money wasted in city traffic could have filled the gaps where social service delivery tapers off.

With social service funding being a hotly contested issue amid government spending debates, a look at key factors of the cost equivalent of urban road congestion in terms of programs to help low-income Americans provides a link between the role of a reduced road congestion in lessening the dependency on federal support services.
