Currently in traffic management (TM) road authorities use infrastructure-based systems to influence people. With market parties being able to offer more and better data at lower cost, and with in-car systems used for communication to the driver, there is a big opportunity for making TM more efficient and effective. The emerging vehicle automation and communication technologies will change the current system towards an in-car based system, leading to a so-called in-car centric TM approach. In this paper, we shortly elaborate on the minimum set of components needed for effective in-car centric TM. Subsequently, we show that massive introduction is very beneficial for improving the societal goals of efficiency, safety and environment. We describe the societal benefits during the transition phase and the potentially avoided TM costs, saving governmental budgets. Conclusion is that in-car centric TM is already feasible on short term and has a ROI of 3 to 4 years.
