On December 5,2018, in the room A716 of the New Main Building, Prof. Ning Jia, from Tianjin University, was invited to make an academic lecture entitled “Commuters’ Acceptance of and Behavior Reactions to License Plate Restriction Policy: A Case Study of Tianjin, China”. More than 20 professors and students from the SEM attended this lecture.

Prof.Jia talked about the license plate restriction (LPR) policies. To better understand the impact of the LPR policies, he studies commuters’ acceptance of and behavior reactions to the policies after their implementation. A theoretical model was proposed as a firststep, followed by a questionnaire survey that was conducted in Tianjin, China,where an LPR policy has been in place since March 2014. Car owners often commuting within the restricted area were sampled as respondents, and a multivariable regression method was employed to analyze the collected surveydata. The results indicate that it is necessary to promote public’s acceptance of the LPR policy, because lower acceptance will lead to more negative reactions towards the policy, which may weaken its effectiveness.  

Prof. Jia’s clear and in-depth lecture has benefited everyone, and was successfully concluded in a warm atmosphere.

Prof. Jia’s the main research direction is urban traffic management and traffic system engineering. At present, He has published more than 20 journal SCI papers as first/corresponding authors, including Transportation Research Part A/B/C/D, European Journal of Operational Research among other journals.
