Research shows a way to minimize traffic jams and accidents

You’re sitting at the corner of Montgomery and San Mateo waiting for the lights to change. A line of cars sits ahead, idling and waiting, too. When the light turns green, the line surges ahead. But as you follow along, you see a car ahead hit its brakes and then the nearly instant reactions of the braking vehicles behind it: a succession of red brakelights glow and then fade as drivers slow and then hit the gas again, hoping to reduce their commutes as much as possible.

This ebb and flow of stop-and-go traffic plays out across the city hundreds of times a day. Recent research shows that if even one of those vehicles in the line drives in a steady fashion rather than the surge-brakes-surge style so common in rush hour, the likelihood of traffic jams, motor vehicle crashes and resultant injuries drops.

Albuquerque aiming to curb crashes at problematic intersection

In any city in the U.S., you'll find an intersection or stretch of the road that local drivers will know to circumvent. Certain areas, for a variety of reasons, can be magnets for car crashes, and those who wish to get to their destination without incident will dodge them accordingly.

For Albuquerque residents, the intersection of Broadway and Mountain has become such a location to avoid. A hotspot for accidents, the intersection is host to a great deal of semi-truck traffic, which is often travelling at speeds upwards of 50 mph. With an eye on making this intersection safer, city officials are taking steps to improve the crossing for both drivers and pedestrians alike.
