- increase cancer risk,
- not to mention the "5-7 years of subjecting people to the traffic congestion, noise and truck pollution of construction and likely cost over-runs in the billions,"
Dr. Khubesrian also states that:
- Induced demand is the reason that the Caltrans predicted congestion relief on the 405 never materialized after a billion dollar lane-widening project.
- Induced demand is the reason that any benefit seen [from building a 710 Tunnel] will be temporary.
- Induced demand is the reason vehicle miles traveled and greenhouse gas emissions will significantly increase.
