External Costs in the Transport Sector – A critical review of the EC Internalisation Policy

ACEA Study – Executive Summary
“The EC Handbook takes congestion as external costs. The analysis shows that congestion costs are borne by the motorist who caused them. Therefore, they are actually internalized. Around two thirds of accidents are covered by insurance companies, thus this proportion is also internalised. Only air pollution, climate costs and, proportionally noise costs, remain as external costs.”
