Sometimes a single driver can vastly improve traffic.Drive like a trucker: keep a large space ahead of your car. This can erase the patterns of stop-and-go driving (wipe out the Traffic Waves.) It can also break up the clogged merge-zones at certain highway exit ramps.Also your daily commute becomes a Zen-like experience. No more rage-fest. See trafficwaves.orgNOTE WELL: in this video, I'm driving in the exit-only lane. (It's a merge-zone jam at a major city exit.) The lane to my right is another exit-only lane. The actual fast lane is TWO LANES RIGHT.
