Ever been driving when traffic seems to slow down for no apparent reason? Scientists have studied this phenomenon actually and their findings might surprise you. At some point, every driver has encountered a traffic crawl or all-out traffic stop on a highway.
When a driver reduces speed on a highway from 60 mph to 50 mph, a chain reaction begins. As the first driver slows down to 50 mph, subsequent drivers will slow to 45 mph to maintain a safe distance. As drivers farther back notice brake lights, they will also slow down to compensate for the upcoming congestion.

Speeding tickets are nothing new. In fact, the first speeding ticket was issued in 1879, when two men were fined for riding their horses at high speeds in Seattle. Shortly after, the first traffic light was put in place in jolly old England. The light used red and green lanterns to help pedestrian and buggy traffic flow more efficiently.

Unbeknownst to many, driving will actually warm up an engine faster and more efficiently than an engine in idle. Many vehicles will soon come equipped with features which allow people to warm or cool their interior without putting their engine into idle.
