An observation by Werner Icking
about traffic jams
and how each individual driver
perceives their own responsibility
for crowded road
The next time you feel frustration or road rage during stop-and-go traffic, consider this axiom.
Have you posted a carpool ad anywhere? Is there a subway or bus or jitney you could take? Have you put away your bicycle to make room for an exercise machine?
Traffic jams are supremely annoying -- but they're not always necessary. You may have more choices than you realize.
