Never underestimate the power of stupid people in stupid cars!

I actually read a paper on this once, there is something more fundamental and applicable than the people-mover theory, its wave-particle compression theory - when one car brakes the car slows from, for example, 90 to 70 MPH, but the speed at which the line of brake lights comes on between cars travels 120% faster which causes congestion problem, no problem, it only takes one person to brake on a busy road to cause the congestion.
