Second, Dehoux and Toint (1991) have claimed that one of the purposes of the application of systems that provide information to drivers is to produce substantial changes in traffic patterns over short periods of time in order to resolve traffic jams more quickly. Such situations, often referred to as non-recurrent congestion, do not fit into an equilibrium framework, since traffic flows will deviate from their equilibrium values during these periods. In view of these arguments, instead of an equilibrium principle, Dehoux and Toint (1991) proposed behavioural rules that could vary from one group of users to the next in order to capture some of the wide behavioural variations between drivers.

1, the term market penetration or adoption of (telematics) information is not used. The discussion of which level of market penetration is best is irrelevant in a world with perfect predictive information and rationally behaving drivers. 1) holds, the situation will be worst if the level of market penetration equals 100 per cent. If the information provided is not perfectly predictive, the situation becomes more complicated. 1, one could argue that the purpose of any kind of information provision system is to get closer to the user equilibrium.

There is full information on all costs involved (including detours) for both the road manager (or government) and the road users. 3. e. it has a positive value. 4. Congestion-pricing is applied to all relevant road segments in the network. 5. Congestion-pricing is technically feasible and the transaction costs are reasonably low. The rationality and full information assumptions are generally made in economic theories. The third assumption is needed to ensure that congestion is associated with disutility.
