Traffic

UN Sustainable Development Goals

GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation and InfrastructureGOAL 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

Description

Traffic on roads consists of road users including pedestrians, ridden or herded animals, vehicles, streetcars, buses and other conveyances, either singly or together, while using the public way for purposes of travel. Traffic laws are the laws which govern traffic and regulate vehicles, while rules of the road are both the laws and the informal rules that may have developed over time to facilitate the orderly and timely flow of traffic.
