All in all, again there were many developments in traffi c in 2015. The increase in congestion that began in 2014 continued in 2015. That led to much more delay. Disruptions are an important cause, but the regular traffi c jams as a consequence of capacity bottlenecks are still the reason for most of the delay. That will not change in the coming years: more and more routes are being used to their full capacity and are at a tipping point, such as the A2 Deil-Empel. Road safety is also under pressure: the number of traffi c fatalities and casualties has risen. Therefore, extra measures seem to be necessary. Developments in the area of emissions are still positive, even though the decrease in CO2 emissions is slow.
