Western vehicular traffic is generally organized, flowing in lanes
of travel for a particular direction, with interchanges, traffic
signals, and/or signage at intersectons to facilitate the orderly
and timely flow of traffic. Vehicles also generally travel at the
same speed on a given roadway.
Organized traffic typically reduces travel time. Though vehicles
wait at some intersections, wait time at others is much shorter.
Organized traffic degenerates to disorganized with an unexpected
occurrence, be it road construction, an accident, or an animal obstructing
the road. On particularly busy freeways, a disruption can persist
until traffic thins. William Beaty observed persistent disruptions
and named the phenomenon traffic waves.
of organized traffic frequently involve queuing theory and stochastic
Unorganized traffic Unorganized traffic occurs in the absence of
lanes and/or signals. Roads do not have lanes, though operators
tend to keep to the appropriate side if the road is wide enough.
Operators frequently overtake other operators, and obstructions
are not uncommon.
Intersections have no signals or signage, and a particular road
at a busy intersection may be dominant (that is, its traffic flows)
until a break in traffic, at which time the dominance shifts to
the other road where vehicles are queued. At the intersection of
two perpendicular roads, a traffic jam results if four vehicles
face each other side-on.
Which side? Brian Lucas answers the question, "Which side of
the road do they drive on?" About 34% of the world by country
population drives on the left, and 66% keeps right. By roadway miles,
about 72% drive on the right.
