Background

With the increase number of vehicles of the roads, towns and cities are becoming more congested. In 2018, drivers in the UK lost an average of 178 hours a year due to congestion, costing drivers £7.9 billion, an average of £1,317 per driver. 

The Challenge

Your challenge is to come up with a solution reduce the number of vehicles on the roads. For example, you could make a more efficient traffic management system to utilise minor roads and ring roads—or you could design an incentive to encourage people to drive less.
