Ever since the onset of economic reforms in early 1990s, India has experienced rapid
economic growth along with increase in prosperity and income levels of citizens.
However, this economic growth has also resulted in exponential growth of private vehicle
ownership and use (similar to what US and Europe have experienced in early 1950s and
late 1960s, respectively), which coupled with increase in population and other related
factors, has resulted in transportation problems, namely accident, congestion, and
pollution, at a severe level.
