"Traffic" see Traffic (disambiguation).
traffic 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.
