What is a rich text element?
The rich text element lets you create and format headings, paragraphs, block quotes, images and videos all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double click and easily create content.
Editing static and dynamic content
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. Just drop static content on any page and start editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize the formatting of any rich text
Titles, paragraphs, block quotes, figures, images and figure captions can all be styled after adding a class to the rich text element using the "when inside" nested selection system.
Let's find out about these concepts and how individuals are severely affected due to traffic and the social restrictions imposed on them.
What is congestion?
When it comes to low traffic, accLucas, a person is considered low-traffic when their ability to attend to daily needs and activities is limited by the following factors:
- Transport availability (services offered)
- Transport accessibility (deterred by surrounding terrain or accessibility requirements)
- The cost or accessibility of transportation
- Travel time (known as time poverty/time poverty)
- The adequacy of transport conditions (dangerous or unsafe)
Essentially, the lack of transport limits their quality of life as they have no access to transport services.studiesshowed that not always the whole family in a household is affected by low traffic, but often individuals. Different levels of road poverty within a family can be found in particular among men and women and young people.
You might think that road poverty is only prevalent in developing countries, but many people in developed countries face challenges due to road poverty. ONEPost 2013took this to the fore in the UK, highlighting how at the time over a million people were at risk of transport poverty due to the rising cost of car ownership.
In particular, low-income areas were under financial pressure due to car ownership and being more than a kilometer from the nearest train or bus station. The implication of these effects is that people may be forced to choose between buying a car they cannot afford (2017/2018Transportation costs families 14%of their income, with low socioeconomic status households having to spend more) or walking long distances to access transport when they are not physically capable or do not feel safe to do so.
Who is affected by low traffic?
professor do marJulian Hine, the following groups are most at risk of transport poverty:
- low wages
- The oldest
- Disabled people
- Young people
1. People with low income
In general, low-income people travel less, own fewer cars, walk more and use public transport more often than high-income people. However, for this group, public transport can become a barrier to job opportunities – particularly for part-time and shift workers.
Women face numerous barriers to accessing public transport, particularly from low-income groups or in social housing. Unfortunately, this leads to social exclusion. For many women, personal safety is an ever-present concern that influences everyday decisions because of fear of traveling alone orgo home not dark, which is a major deterrent when using mass transit services. Especially for low-income single mothers, high reliance on public transport can mean they are unable to access adequate health services due to lack of time and family/caregiver responsibilities.
The elderly are considered one of the most vulnerable and the largest group of people who do not have access to conventional services due to their dependence on public transport. Within this group there is a loss of independence, leading to a lack of confidence and sometimes a reluctance to use local transport services when they are not conveniently available.
4. Disabled people
On average, people with disabilities in the UK travel a third less than the rest of the population. accessibility difficulties, boarding and traveling on buses,feel insecure, and long walks have become a major barrier to transport accessibility, and therefore transport poverty among this group. ended14.1 millionPeople with disabilities in the UK, representing 19% of the adult population. However, there are fantastic organizations that are helping to create better access to services for people with disabilities, such asBriometrix– cities and towns, greenways and parks, and transportation networks help connect your islands of accessibility, showing people how to travel actively through mobility mapping. As mobility for people with disabilities is a priority, it is important for organizations and governments to look at ways to create equal opportunities through safe mobility options.
5. Young people
Children and young people are at high risk of transport poverty, especially in low-income areas and when they are part of a family with a low socioeconomic status. As young people reach adolescence, when connection with peers and social inclusion are essential, access to transportation gives young people a sense of community, independence and responsibility. Access to safe and affordable transport is also essential to providing youth and adult employment opportunities. If transport systems are not well designed for ease, convenience and safe mobility, young people can be severely disadvantaged and their opportunities restricted.
What is a shipping disadvantage?
Lack of access to transport can lead to deprivation in many different ways, and this evolves into 'transport deprivation'. The transportation disadvantage can be caused by many variables – from the practical geography of the country, individual health, socioeconomic status and availability of government services.
A common but underrated example of transportation deprivation can be seen if we look at car ownership in modern society. When families are forced to own a car due to convenience or lack of alternative services and need to own more than one vehicle to carry out day-to-day activities, it can create difficulties and strain finances, physical and mental health and relationships. When faced with the disadvantages of transit, individuals and families are forced to face difficult and sometimes undesirable circumstances.
Even when public transport is available for those who cannot use a car, there are still travel-related disadvantages for people who must use these services to access education, employment and the community. This is particularly pronounced in regions where transport services are not within walking distance - broken or non-existent paths, poor lighting, steep terrain, long walks and other factors that contribute to deprivation. Other disadvantages are lack of time or missed opportunities because the trip is too long and time consuming.
Who is affected by the transportation disadvantage?
As access to transport has the potential to enhance or eliminate opportunities, transport deprivation tends to hurt those who most need access to transport. For example, families and individuals with low socioeconomic status may reside in regions further away from cities and regional centers, where job opportunities and wages tend to be lower.
This is having a roll-on effect, essentially creating disadvantages for people who have to travel long distances to and from work or for those who cannot afford the associated costs of owning a car. Access to transport services can act as a barrier, preventing an individual from taking advantage of the opportunity to work further afield or even access a quality education. This concept is also known associal exclusion– which restricts access to services and therefore to social opportunities.
It isUnited Nationsnotes that the richest in society benefit most from well-designed infrastructure and transport systems, which improve living standards. Living further away from city centers means that public transport journeys become more complex for commuters. For example, we've seen this in large suburban developments, especially in Western countries where governments continue to build large automobile-dependent suburbs. These large-scale, low-density urban developments discourage walking to mass transit systems, as long distances must be covered to get there. These suburbs are being built at speeds that public transport simply cannot keep up with. This is not just because of the speed at which these suburbs are being built, but also because they generate less tax revenue than more densely populated areas closer to cities. This causes the suburbs to become isolated and, as a result, risk being hampered by traffic until the infrastructure can catch up.
Interesting,searchit also proved that poorer individuals and groups around the world are generally not as mobile. The UN also notes that rural isolation is associated with poor health, low agricultural productivity due to lack of resources and modern technology, and the virtual confinement of the disabled and elderly in their homes. The downside of traffic consequently affects the most vulnerable – the most. And for those living in extreme poverty, access to accessible roads and transport considerably reduces the level of poverty experienced.
Consequently, the lack of options available and the poor quality of services make it difficult to access adequate public and private transport. And with a lack of mobility, challenges will continue to arise for individuals trapped by the transportation disadvantage unless governments and communities look for more creative ways to improve access to services in isolated rural suburbs and even in lower socioeconomic areas. casualties.
And now? create fair traffic
Combating poverty and transport deprivation requires support at the national level of government all the way to action and implementation by local government. Transportation, city and territory planners need to think creatively about how to respond directly to the needs of their communities to ensure fair transportation.
For example, in 2021, the UK Government announced funding of UK-wide councils known as “Rural Mobility Fund🇧🇷 The RMF essentially offers rural communities an opportunity to raise funds to transport communities more efficiently usingtransport on demandSystems – Moving away from fixed-route transit traffic in areas where it is not economically viable or practical for residents. Governments around the world are warming to the concept ofMaaS (Mobility as a Service), and are gradually paving the way for innovative ways of dealing with road deprivation and poverty using modern technological advances.
Creating equitable access to transit, and therefore opportunities for our communities, is an essential fabric of society that needs to be addressed. Without change, and without policymakers advocating for the rights of individuals and families who may be victims of transportation deprivation and poverty, socioeconomic disparities and transportation-related barriers will continue to negatively impact those who most need access to transportation.
At Liftango, we understand the need to address these deficiencies in transportation offerings to improve society at large. For that reason, we have a strong focus on helping transport companies understand the issues they are facing and develop appropriate services capable of solving the right problems at the local level. While we have developed useful tools to help identify regions of high need and plan appropriate solutions, we recognize that there is no substitute for truly understanding needs at the local level and working with those most affected to make this happen and developing useful solutions.
