Assessing the Impacts of Vehicle Emissions and Safety Regulations
Author(s): Wee B V
This ITF Roundtable document is on regulation. The discussion is limited to regulations for standards for road vehicles aiming to improve the environmental and safety performance of these vehicles. The focus is on costs, although a brief discussion on benefits is added as well. The perspective of the paper is one of policy relevance and policy-relevant research, not so much a theoretical academic one.
