Every year, cars are stuck for 32 million hours in jams in the Brussels region. In 2013, BECI calculated the yearly cost of traffic jams in the capital. They carry a total cost of 511 million Euro, of which 70 million would be due to air pollution. Unfortunately the costs are likely to be much higher.
