DRIVE & SAVE
Every move a driver makes costs money. The vehicle's purchase or lease, the required insurance, the cost of fuel, maintenance, & registration fees, possible car repairs use money from your bank account. Every time you drive, whether you are hitting the fuel to accelerate with the wind in your hair and the sun warming your body or braking into a red traffic light, "Stop" sign, traffic jam, road blockage, metering light or merge, it is costing you money. The good thing is it is only a few penny at a time. If you accelerate one time to 65 mph, it could cost you 25 cents. Maintaining that speed 65 mph for 10 minutes is $1.00. Braking from 65 mph is 25 cents. It is a $1.50 to travel 6.5 miles in 10 minutes. What happen if you are in heavy traffic? How many times do you accelerate and brake? Most drivers don't maintain a steady speed in heavy traffic. The 6.5 mile trip for $1.50 under ideal condition may be costing you $10.00 or more and 30 minutes of time.
Drive and save is simple. Keep your vehicle moving. The less you accelerate, brake and stop the cheaper your drive will be. If you eliminated the acceleration and the braking, your trip cost could drop from over $10 to $7.50.
Fewer acceleration, less braking, and more coasting can save you $2.50 on a 6.5 mile trip, one way & save 10 minutes of time. The savings is related to brake replacement, gas or electric costs, or wear & tear on other vehicle parts; transmission, engine, etc... Speed up and slowing down takes time. Stopping before you reach your destination is proof that you are wasting time and money or no movement and spending money for nothing. This does not include reduce medical costs related to stress, what your save time is worth to you, better roads, because more vehicles are damaging the roads less related to slowing and accelerating and less pollution. If you have to drive, please join in the movement and save.
Traffic Commute's first objective is awareness. Drivers control the roads by their actions. Drive as safely as possible without affecting the stream of traffic. Braking and/or stopping costs everyone. Braking is a disruption to the flow that can create a stop. Stopping is a temporary boulder in the road that causes lane changes. Lane changes without space cause more braking and stopping until you have several boulders in every lane. There are ways to control these issues, if we work together.
Here are two suggestions that keep traffic flowing or get it moving sooner.
1) During "Rush Hour", use a 3 open vehicle spaces buffer to create a 10 second cushion before driver have to stop their vehicle. The cushion would allow at least 5 vehicle to get moving before adding 2 seconds to the backup. More movement with less stopping makes your trip shorter and cheaper.
2) At traffic lights, don’t go in bumper to bumper. Allow 1 open vehicle space to start moving when the vehicle 3 vehicles ahead starts to move. Stop, if drivers ahead are not paying attention. This would allow all the vehicles behind you to start moving 4 to 6 seconds sooner. Keeping space to move reduces stop time making your trip shorter and cheaper.
These two actions will be a public service to help you and your community save lives, time & money. It takes no time, and less effort plus you save money & time for yourself & your family.
Traffic Commute has traffic games, plans, & policies for individuals, groups, businesses, & government agencies that could save a trillion dollars with participation.

Please make the effort to become part of the traffic flow with constant movement as your objective.
