Busting Up Traffic Jams

Would you believe that it’s possible for one driver to break up a traffic jam? It’s true, and YOU can do it. By leaving a gap in front of you, not jamming the gas, and not hitting the brakes, you can end the vicious cycle that we call a traffic jam.

Traffic jams are actually “traffic waves”. By refusing to pass on the wave to drivers behind you, it’s often possible to break up the clog and get where you’re going faster.

Be Proactive

The best way to improve the flow of the road around you is to be proactive. By seeing a problem and focusing on fixing it instead of keeping it going, you can be a part of the solution. You can avoid braking, and you can save gas every time.
