Abstract

As part of a campaign to reduce CO2 emissions produced by vehicles, in early 2007 Taiwan passed the idling stop policy for all vehicles except motorcycles. This paper investigates how much time a motorcyclist is willingness-to-accept when the engine is turned off while stopping at traffic lights. A choice experiment is designed and implemented to estimate how much time compensation motorcyclists are willing-to-accept in return for compliance with the new policy. Results show that the median willingness-to-accept time is 49.17s with a cycle length of 150s.
