Several years ago Seattle engineer William Beaty began experimenting with driving slowly enough through stop and go freeway traffic to avoid having to stop. He discovered his driving had an unexpected effect. It stopped or reduced the severity of wave traffic jams. As he continued his driving experiment he became convinced that individual drivers could make a difference. As he learned more he transformed from a type A aggressive driver to a zen philosopher behind the wheel spreading the gift of reduced congestion to his fellow drivers.
