Using the emergency lane will minimise traffic congestion



P4 News

6 January 2014


In an interview with Denmark’s national radio news programme, PA supports a new initiative that lets cars use the emergency lane in order to reduce traffic congestion. In the interview PA explains that cars using the emergency lane should, however, transport a minimum of two people.

PA says: “Reserving emergency lanes for cars with two people or more will create an incentive to increase car-pooling. For instance, in San Francisco, areas have been established where drivers can pick up passengers, and these cars are then allowed to drive in the priority lane.”

PA encourages Danish workplaces to support the initiative: “There is an increasing number of portals and apps that make car-pooling easier. Moreover, an increasing number of Danish private and public companies facilitate car-pooling among their employees.”
