    Abstract

    The pleasant environment of Stockholm may have influenced people to be very concerned about increasing car traffic. Steps taken in the 1970s to diminish car traffic were insufficient. The introduction of some form of road pricing became the only way to meet the goals of politicians in this respect. This paper traces the history of attempts to introduce road pricing in Stockholm, especially the "Dennis Agreement", discusses why it failed, and considers future possibilities. © The London School of Economics and the University of Bath 2001
