Mobility and Traffic

From Austria comes Karl-Heinz, a working expert on mobility management. While in Auroville, Karl-Heinz made studies of the plans of this city-in-the-becoming in order to determine the needs of the residents, from young children though the elderly. Aware of the predicted 50,000 population, he points out that since people do not suddenly change their habits, it’s necessary to change current trends, which is where mobility management comes into the picture. Traffic includes vehicles of every type as well as pedestrians. Therefore Karl-Heinz talks about streets in addition to roads, streets and speed breakers and all that offers a sense of safety, security, to those who venture out and about.
