Bottlenecks in road networks caused by incidents

The Dutch highway network is increasingly congested. Apart from fixed bottlenecks, this is for about 20% caused by incidents. In order to find remedies for this congestion caused by incidents, it is helpful to have an overview available of its severity, distinguished by road section. However, incidents may occur in regular queues and the question is then how to attribute delay to either incidents or to other causes.
