TIRED OF TRAFFIC CONGESTION?

FROM THE LEFT LANE (Article 7)

TIRED OF TRAFFIC CONGESTION?

Here are a few simple things we can do to help reduce traffic congestion:

Understand how milliseconds add up to gridlock. Consider these two examples:

1. You are driving on the highway and you come to a point where the traffic is very slow. You drive 15 m.p.h. for 30 minutes and then you come to a point where you can speed back up. At that point there is an accident being cleaned up. Only this accident is on the other side of the median!

The only reason the traffic going your way is backed up is because people slowed down to “take a look”. Each person only wasted a very small amount of time but it added up to everyone having to drive 15 m.p.h. for 30 minutes.

2. Consider an intersection that has a one minute traffic light cycle. Let’s say that on average we get 10 cars through the intersection each green light (per lane). Let’s say you arrive and there are 30 cars in front of you.

This means you will need three traffic light cycles to get through. Now go back in time just 30 minutes. Each person closes the gap in front of them as they go through the intersection by 1/10th of a car length. Now we get 11 cars through every minute instead of just 10 and after 30 minutes we have no one waiting when you arrive at the light.

If you find yourself injured in an accident in Florida – it is best to consult an attorney with substantial experience. There are so many different circumstances that a proper answer to your particular problem can only be obtained by a trained and experienced lawyer.
