Gracias por el vídeo! Según mi criterio, los trucos para prevenir atascos es que haya menos monos sobre ruedas, y los que ya están circulando que dejen espacio con el de delante. Que hay mucho chupaculos suelto en las ciudades. Saludos!

Buses just a ton of people in buses Which makes less cars AND evil car dealerships go Out of business goodie bus drivers make more money Less traffic=less roads=more grass=more farming and food Which just makes a literal better world

I have this theory, that most traffics are caused by the "why did the chicken crossed the road" jokes. Some people are just so eager to prove their hypothesis

Also, when the left lane slows down for a second, don't enter the right lane and book it to try and make it in front because by the time you make it to where the slowdown on the left side occurred you'll have to merge your self in a tight spot and cause the entire lane to slow down

When did the meaning of "Traffic" shift from Moving Vehicles to Traffic Congestion, or Non-moving Vehicles? This usage caused some "Listening" in my mind, that is, Difficulty,
Matt Whyndham (1 day ago)
No doubt caused by back-inference from the phrase "Caught in traffic", which long ago omitted the Congestion part, because it was obvious from the context. Now "traffic" is interpreted as blockage in some flow, rather than as a flow.

Now the real problem: the state and his laws, the actual laws and traffic lights is so dumb. The solution: privatize all the roads and let the market figure out the best design.

I don't see the point: If you physically connect all cars together, the highway snake would disappear. And that's formerly known as train. A train is more efficient anyway, so there's no need for a highway in the first place.

Wrong ! To decrease traffic, you just have to take a bike and stop driving (alone) in your car !!

I bet that self-driving will make things only worse. Just one driver not cooperating (let alone breaking rules) would be enough to destroy your self-driving house of cards. Some device that gives you sort of vision what happens several cars ahead of you however will. Something like video-game car radar that will show you other cars on the road that you can't see. It can be made by installing radar/lidar/camera array coupled with image ML processing on roof of the car. That's exactly the hardware that used in self driving experiments. Just remove the silly self-driving thing. It will work only in calm scenarios but not in crazy rush hour congestion.

Simple solution? Front and rear sensor. If distance with front & rear car is not same, it will buzzing. If distance with front car in certain speed is less than certain distance, it will buzzing. So the distance with front car is depends on certain speed. How about it?

This solution only works under an ideal condition which all vehicles are self-driving and the facilities are always in good maintenance. May we have to wait for at least 50 years for it. But I'm sure that human will never give up the passion of controlling vehicle by hand in any circumstances any period of times.

More traffic -> more annoyed car drivers -> eventually less car drivers. Smaller roads -> more traffic (+better and fairer land usage: think of the amount of the land and money used just for car drivers, what about the poor people who cannot afford a car or people who are environmentally aware and choose not to drive a car?) -> more annoyed car drivers -> less cars -> greener planet -> problem solved! Heavy traffic can discourage people from using personal cars (if alternatives such as public transport exist) and hence have beneficial effects. We need to stop thinking of traffic as a problem that needs to be solved to ensure smooth flow of large number environmental polluters. Instead, we should really be asking why are there so many cars and how to reduce the number of cars.

Two Tailed Warrior (16 days ago)
Don't ever fucking expect anyone to do it, though. At this point im ready to put a rear facing gun for people who try to merge with my car. You need something that makes tail gating so bad (besides the common sense reason of fucking dying) because otherwise they won't see a problem with riding your ass the whole way at 20 over the speed limit. Even then, there was some kind of study in Japan I think that had the cars going in a circle, and they still managed to snake or something. I also wouldn't trust A.I. as the solution, because a) I don't want to give up driving, something I enjoy doing, because people are too autistic to use their brains, and b) A.I. are just as incapable of adapting to the situation, except this time for the reason of limited processing.

you just use "simple" and "traffic" in the same sentence?
Igor Matos (16 days ago)
Good, so if we got only autonomous cars could we remove the traffic signals? Did you forget the pedestrians? or in your world, there is only robots and autonomous cars? The solution to the traffic jams is to focus on pedestrians, cyclists and public transport, forget cars.
