A study done by NAVTEQ, a navigation system data provider, found that using GPS systems with real-time traffic information can save drivers four days a year of driving time and http://www.rickgenest.com/pfizer-levitra-50mg can cut emissions by 21 percent.

NAVTEQ collected data on driving times of three types of drivers in Dusseldorf and Munich, Germany:  drivers without in-vehicle navigation, drivers with static navigation and drivers with real-time traffic navigation.  In total, the study reflects data from 2,100 individual trips, 2,000 km and 500 hours of driving.  The study showed the group with the real-time traffic alerts spent 18 percent less time getting to their destinations than the other two groups.

Over the course of levitra cost a year, those savings add up to four days of travel time.  The study also states that the cialis low price reduction in distance traveled and increase in fuel efficiency caused by choosing less congested routes would amount to a decrease in emissions of .79 metric tons per driver, or 21 percent per year.  They calculate that U.S. drivers would see the same savings as German ones.

Since this study was coordinated by a company that has a heavy interest in GPS sales, it's important to note that you don't need a GPS unit to get real-time traffic information.  Many smart phones are equipped with mapping software that gives you the same information and you can always check out your route online before leaving the house.

This 'study' was conducted by a navigation system provider - the figures must surely be plucked out of someone's ass.

Investment in public transport will have much longer lasting and significant benefit.

of course the study was contrived to we like it express levitra delivery favor the sponsor's product. but the numbers are entirely plausible for a congested region. here in Seattle, choosing the cialis woman right bridge based on this sort of data can easily halve my travel time, with corresponding reduction of fuel consumption.

Efficient transit will indeed have more benefit, but devices like these are low-hanging fruit, which don't interfere with the larger goal in *any way*. why insult it?
