Or a B.Sc./M.Sc/PhD in Traffic Enginnering.

The time it takes stopped traffic to recover it's operating speed is within five times of the time it was stationary, so obviously it will move quite a bit faster if even a few drivers would manage to creep through rather than stop-go.

Stop-go is also a much better recipe for being shunted.
