Why Are Congestion Charges So Contentious?

Congestion charges seem like a no-brainer policy to alleviate traffic gridlock in cities, but why is it so difficult to implement? We hear perspectives about the failed congestion charge plan in New York from Dr.Gernot Wagner of the Columbia Business School, as well as what’s needed to implement this in the Klang Valley context with Dr. Law Teik Hua of UPM.

  1. People, Planet, Profit is brought to you by UMW Toyota.
