Infrastructure That Needs Investment

The Federal Highway Administration estimates that 25 percent of congestion is attributable to traffic incidents, around half of which are crashes. According to a study published by the Eno Center for Transportation, a 10 percent autonomous vehicle market penetration rate would result in an estimated 15 percent decrease in freeway congestion delays for all vehicles, mostly due to smoothed flow and bottleneck reductions.
