Abstract: Traffic congestion has become a growing problem in many countries since the innovation of engines, and consequently, the mass production of commuter vehicles in the 19th century. A number of solutions have been sought to reduce its impact. Through a literature survey, this paper attempts to categorize a number of current approaches and identify the strengths and weaknesses of each solution or a combination of such solutions, in order to build a good background study. From this survey it has become clear that for success any solution most likely will have to integrate technologies from the different categories. For example, technical solutions must be combined with good traffic rules and regulations. Public education and the announcement of new regulations for commuters must be performed in stages and repetitively to increase public awareness.

Keywords: traffic jam avoidance, congestion, integrated and intelligent system.
