Jerks Actually Reduce the Risk of Traffic Jams: Physicists

Story here. Who’da thought?

"According to the latest physics research, rule-breakers – drivers passing you on the wrong side or changing lanes too close to the intersection – actually help smooth the flow of traffic for the rest of us."

So the next time someone cuts you off, give them some nice words of praise. :smiley:

But then, if jerks really did improve traffic flow, there’d probably be no traffic jams in Bangkok. Hmmm.
