TDM

Overview of countermeasure examples

TDM is an abbreviation of Traffic Demand Management, a method of solving traffic problems such as traffic congestion by changing the behavior of drivers.
By encouraging customers to change their time, means of transportation and how to use routes, traffic demand during peak hours is distributed to off-peak hours, thereby solving traffic problems such as traffic congestion.
