A $5 Trillion Ticket: Funding the Future of Transportation | Andreas Mai | TEDxWilmingtonSalon
Oversized one occupant vehicles create never ending traffic jams and suffocation pollution in our fast-growing cities, killing 1.3 Million people in crashes and 2.4 Million with vehicle pollution each year. Chronically underfunded, most of our roads and many of our bridges are falling apart. To reduce the resulting indirect tax of $10,000 per vehicle all of us are paying each year, we could invest 12¢ per vehicle mile to fix our broken personal and public transportation systems, and to jump-start a fortuitous cycle of innovation in transportation that could give 1.7 Billion poor people access to more affordable mobility, and create $5 Trillion economic value around the world.
