Abstract

This paper establishes mild probability-theoretical conditions under which observations of space-averaged speed and occupancy in some area concentrate with low scatter around a well-defined curve. These conditions are validated against empirical data from Stockholm and Geneva. No equilibrating process is required to be in operation.

Keywords: Congestion; Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram

JEL Classification: R4, C18
