Second, we have to figure out the types of cars are crossing the bridge more at any times of the day; is it passenger cars, transport, bus, trailers, etc. Third, we will come up with the types of incentives to put in place to encourage car users to take buses instead of driving their own cars. Finally, we will have to determine how to reach the construction companies to let them know about our research and help them to implement our
