    Traffic Waves: Wiping Out a Traffic Jam

    This requires watching the video below that this guy (who sounds like Kermitt the Frog) made and listening to what he believes to be a way YOU can break up certain types of traffic jams.
    AFTER watching the video..... you be the judge. Would it work or is he a douchebag?

    Some of what he says makes sense, but if people knew HOW to drive in the first place this would all be happening anyway. And most jerks are driving around in the left lane and not maintaining the highest speed.

    We should be doing this constant speed thing anyway. Using your brakes is such a waste of gas. The problem with this creation of a big gap is that typically you'll get cut off for it, and you'll end up having to brake anyway.

    I agree with you. The only thing I feel benefits his type of driving is that it is safer. But as far as breakin up traffic? Nope. Not buying it.

    Well real traffic is mostly due to people exiting the freeway and getting stuck at stoplights. For the most part, this technique won't help with that. Sure, it will be more fuel efficient, but you won't see traffic magically start to move because of it.

    The real solution to traffic is getting cars off the freeway more efficiently - I say get rid of stoplights and try roundabouts.

    The traffic problem I have here is older drivers, 70's to 80's, are mixed with drivers that are commuting. They do things like slowing way down for green lights then at times will continue through on red.
