ABSTRACT

In the article the impact of the economic crisis on traffic speeds and intensities at the entrances to large urban centers is analyzed, describing the case of Barcelona, ​​which has a tracking system traffic speeds in your blood network. The recessive economic situation from 2008 has involved a reduction in traffic intensities of 9,2%, and a parallel decrease in the levels of recurrent congestion, resulting in increases in the rates of circulatory flow at rush hour reaching in some sections above 75% of those registered in 2007 on weekdays values.
