Stillstand auf deutschen Straßen kostet 7,8 Milliarden Euro pro Jahr

- Studie von INRIX und Cebr zeigt, dass Verkehrsstaus deutsche Haushalte jährlich über 500 Euro kosten

LONDON, 10. Dezember 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- INRIX®, ein führender internationaler Anbieter von Verkehrs- und Reiseinformationen, gibt die Ergebnisse einer Studie in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Centre of Economics and Business (Cebr) zu den wirtschaftlichen Kosten durch Verkehrsstillstand bekannt. Die Studie zeigt, dass Verkehrsstaus die deutsche Wirtschaft jährlich über 7,8 Milliarden Euro kosten – 533 Euro pro Pendlerhaushalt mit Auto.

Diese Kosten entstehen durch verschwendetes Benzin und verlorene Zeit(1) sowie durch indirekte Kosten, die von Unternehmen in Form von höheren Preisen an die Kunden weitergegeben werden.

Direkte Kosten (Benzin und Zeit):

  • Benzin: Über 824 Millionen Euro werden in Form von Benzin verschwendet – für die 13,2 Millionen deutschen Auto-Pendler entspricht dies individuellen Kosten von 62 Euro für das Jahr 2011.
  • Zeit: Zeit ist Geld. Die durchschnittlichen Kosten von verschwendeter Zeit durch Verkehrsstaus belaufen sich pro Pendler auf 365 Euro – das entspricht nationalen Kosten durch verschwendete Zeit von 4,8 Milliarden Euro.

Indirekte Kosten (steigende Warenkosten):

  • Haushaltswaren: Bei 17 Prozent des täglichen Pendlerverkehrs handelt es sich um Geschäfts- oder Frachtfahrzeuge. Aufgrund von Verkehrsstaus werden über 2,1 Milliarden Euro an indirekten Kosten jedes Jahr an deutsche Haushalte weitergegeben.
  • Pro Haushalt: Verkehrsstaus kosten jeden deutschen Haushalt jährlich 105 Euro aufgrund von gesteigerten Waren- und Dienstleistungskosten, die durch deutsche Unternehmen weitergegeben werden.

„Verkehrsstaus beeinflussen unser Leben auf viele Arten – sie bestimmen, wie lange wir zur Arbeit brauchen, wie oft wir tanken müssen und wie viel die Lebensmittel im Supermarkt kosten", so Bryan Mistele, Präsident und CEO von INRIX. „Die Studie zeigt, dass effiziente Verkehrsflüsse wichtig für eine starke und pulsierende Wirtschaft sind."

Kosten durch Verkehrsstaus in Stuttgart:

INRIX hat berechnet, dass Autofahrer nirgends so viel Zeit im Stau verbringen wie in Stuttgart – rund 58 Stunden verbringen die Pendler dort pro Jahr zusätzlich auf den Straßen. Insgesamt fahren 65 Prozent der 2,7 Millionen Einwohner der Region Stuttgart mit dem Auto zur Arbeit.

  • Pro Stunde betragen die Kosten für Verkehrsstillstand in Stuttgart 16,1 Euro. Der nationale Durchschnitt liegt bei 13,1 Euro.
  • Allein an direkten Kosten verschwendet die Pendlergemeinde in Stuttgart 701 Millionen Euro in Verkehrsstaus.
  • Von den 7,8 Milliarden Euro direkten und indirekten Kosten pro Jahr, die durch Verkehrsstaus entstehen, entfallen eine Milliarde Euro auf Haushalte in Stuttgart. Auf Pendlerhaushalte mit Auto entfallen jährliche Kosten von 932 Euro im Vergleich zu 533 Euro deutschlandweit.

Übersicht über die Methodik der Studie The Economic Costs of Gridlock:

Cebr ist ein unabhängiges Wirtschaftsforschungsunternehmen, das 1993 gegründet wurde. Cebr  liefert Beratung und Prognosen für städtische Institutionen, Regierungen, Kommunen und zahlreiche Blue-Chip-Unternehmen in ganz Europa.

Hier eine kurze Zusammenfassung zur Methodik der Studie:

  • Cebr nutzte die eigenen Daten von INRIX zu Verkehrsstaus während Hauptverkehrszeiten in 22, 18, und 13 Ballungsräumen in Deutschland, Großbritannien und Frankreich, um die durchschnittlichen ‚verschwendeten Stunden' pro Jahr und Fahrzeug zu errechnen.
  • Um die direkten Kosten für Pendlerhaushalte mit Auto zu bestimmen, nutzte Cebr seine geschützte Transport-, Stadt- und Makroökonomie-Modelle, um direkte Kosten durch höheren Benzinverbrauch und den verlorenen Wert von Zeit, die im Stau verbracht wird, zu kalkulieren. Direkte Benzinkosten wurden durch Verwendung von durchschnittlichen Benzinpreisen für Super 95 Benzin berechnet, die auf Berichten von AA in Großbritannien und dem European Commission Oil Bulletin basieren. Als durchschnittlicher Verbrauch wurde für ein durchschnittlich großes Autos 0,5 Liter pro Stunde angenommen.
  • Cebr errechnete den Wert 'verschwendeter Zeit' in Beziehung zu dem Stundenlohn des Pendlers. Es wurde angenommen, dass der Wert verschwendeter Zeit 50 Prozent des nationalen und städtischen Stundenlohns beträgt, da ein Teil der im Stau verlorenen Produktivität während der Arbeitswoche wieder ausgeglichen werden kann.
  • Für die Berechnung von indirekten Kosten, die durch Unternehmen an Pendlerhaushalte mit Autos in Ballungsräumen weitergegeben werden, hat Cebr angenommen, dass 12 Prozent des Verkehrs während morgendlichen und abendlichen Hauptverkehrszeiten geschäftlich und 5 Prozent Frachtverkehr sind. Dies basiert auf Geschäfts- und Pendlerzeitprofildaten von EuroStat Urban Audit, EuroStat Freight Transport Statistics und dem Department for Transport (DfT). Der Wert von ‚verschwendeter Arbeitszeit' wurde mit 50 Prozent des nationalen und städtischen Stundenlohns pro Arbeiter angesetzt, da ein Teil der im Stau verlorenen Produktivität während der Arbeitswoche wieder ausgeglichen werden kann. Von der verschwendeten Zeit nimmt Cebr an, dass 80-90 Prozent der direkten Kosten, die durch Verschwendung von Benzin und Arbeitszeit entstanden, durch Unternehmen an Pendlerhaushalte mit Auto weitergegeben werden.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a business application to multiple users (multi-tenancy). Docker, a container technology, was used to ...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
