The Burden of Risk Aversion in Selfish Routing

Traffic congestion aggravates the daily life of millions of people around the globe and congestion games from game theory provide a suitable tool to understand its effects and offer insights on how to alleviate it.  Classic congestion games assume deterministic edge delays, while in reality delays are uncertain and risk-averse drivers might prefer longer but safer routes, further exacerbating the problem of increased travel times and emissions.
