On The Road is the second live album (two LPs, reissued on one CD) by English rock band Traffic, released in 1973. Recorded live in Germany, it features the Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory lineup plus extra keyboardist (for live performances) Barry Beckett.

This "On the Road" album was recorded by this line-up which now included Barry Beckett, in Germany, in 1973. IMO, this is the best live album that Traffic recorded. This line- up is very good, better, IMO, than the 1971 line-up which recorded the "Welcome to the Canteen" and "The Low Spark of High- Heeled Boys" albums. The Muscle Shoals musicians are very good, sounding with a lot of experience to follow improvisations without problems. Just two years after "Welcome to the canteen", Traffic released "On the road", another live album. The time gap between the albums may be relatively short, but in the interim the band had released two studio albums which represented a major shift in their direction.

Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 - The Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 is an Act of Parliament in the United Kingdom, which provided powers to regulate or restrict traffic on UK roads, in the interest of safety.

Decades of traffic data across the United States shows that adding new road capacity doesn't actually improve congestion. The data shows that traffic is moving slightly slower now on 405 than before the widening," says Matthew Turner, a Brown University economist. Related Highways gutted American cities. In the United States, city planners and traffic engineers have long acted on the belief that adding road capacity will reduce traffic. But no one had ever tested this idea empirically. One reason is that it's a difficult thing to analyze.
