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.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small?

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...

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.
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago.
