We know you know how to drive & it works for you. Are you interested in information that would save you money, time, and reduce your stress? As an example, how does speeding to a traffic stop get you to your destination faster? Sure, you arrive at the traffic stop ahead of other drivers, you wait and block the road as other drivers catch up to you, stop, & add to the wait time, & get to go faster than others to the next stop to repeat the process again. This action does not get rid of a traffic jam. If you think about it, it creates a traffic jam. If you enjoy what you are doing, the costs you pay every driving day, and you get a smile as you wait to move, please don't give traffic jams a second thought. We work to change the world without your help. This is your invitation to help save the world.
Here are some driving questions to realize we can reduce or eliminate traffic jams, because we are motivated, able to think "Out of our box", we are responsible for the results of our actions, and we can adapt. Let's drive to reduce traffic jams & save money, time, & resources, right now.
1) Do you like traffic jams?
2) Do you believe there is a traffic jam solution? Belief is a necessary and very powerful thing.
3) Do you control other drivers or do you just control yourself, your vehicle, and your actions?
4) If we drive the way we drove yesterday, will there be a traffic jam today?
5) Do you mind losing money from your bank account when you brake, stop, & wait, because you ran out of room?
The more aware we are to what is happening, the easier it is to solve any issue we face. Taking actions that doesn't make driving faster or more efficient for all adds to the waste. It makes the process more expensive and time consuming as one driver tries to benefit while 1,000 drivers lose. There is more than one driver taking driving actions that slows 1,000 drivers.
Every driving action costs you money. The vehicle's purchase or lease, the required insurance, the cost of fuel, maintenance, & registration fees, car repairs and maintenance use money from your bank account. Every time you drive, whether you are hitting the accelerator 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, the meter is running. Since we are given our money away without a thought, drivers can afford to spend money on driver's education to save themselves from unnecessary expenses.
As an example; When 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 & stopping from 65 mph is 25 cents. It is a $1.50 to travel 6.5 miles in 10 minutes. What happens if you are in heavy traffic? How many times do you accelerate and brake? Driving bumper to bumper, it is hard to maintain 65 mph. A 6.5 mile trip for $1.50 under ideal condition may be costing you $6.00 or more and 20 minutes or more of additional time, because your average speed is 19.5 mph or worse.
Drive and save is simple. Keep our vehicles moving. The less we accelerate, brake, stop, wait, and repeat, the cheaper our drives will be. The fewer times we vary our speed and are forced to brake reduces our price. Our trip costs could drop from over $6 to $3.50 by doing less.
Fewer accelerations, less braking, and more coasting can save you $2.50 on a 6.5 mile trip & save 5 minutes of time.
The savings is related to brake replacement, gas or electric costs, or wear & tear on other vehicle parts; transmission, engine, etc... Stopping before you reach your destination adds time and cost to our trips. Basically, our current driving behavior costs us more than it has to. How much? In some metropolitan areas, the braking, stopping & waiting costs per year are higher than $1,000.
What would your saved drive time be worth to you? What issues could you solve with more money in your bank account? Do you like giving money to the oil & electric companies to sit in stopped traffic and throwing your purchase in the air? If you have to drive, please join in this community service project that save you money while you help the community. Every person can add to the driving solution. Driving well can be a community service activity that pays you.
Most people are trained for a specific skill. What course have you taken to drive your vehicle through traffic jams. Traffic Commute is offering a class to supplement your information and provide ways to reduce your transportation costs. In addition to you saving money & time for yourself and your community, we will donate $10.00 to a school district, PTA or school group for every membership or person taking our driver information class. Improper changing lanes & merging cause braking and stopping. Traffic Commute's first objective is awareness. Drivers control the roads by their actions. In the equation of movement, there is space, speed, & time. Emotion & feelings are not in this equation. We want drivers to drive as fast as the equation allows without blocking and braking. Braking disrupts traffic flow and stopping blocks the road. Waiting allows the traffic jam to get worse. There are simple ways to control these issues and save time, money, the environment, the world and your bank account. All it takes is you to follow the laws of motion.
Traffic Commute has traffic games, plans, & policies for individuals, groups, businesses, & government agencies that could save 1 or 2 trillion dollars in the U.S. with your participation. It is your choice whether you join & hire Traffic Commute, create your own individual driving method, or ignore this information and keep losing time, money & resources. Brake lights, constant "Stop & Go" driving, and traffic jams are highly visible signs of waste & financial loss.
We affect traffic by our choices and actions. We make a difference by our individual behavior. When you want to make things better for yourselves and inadvertently for others, please contact us at email@example.com or @TCCarclub on Twitter to show your interest in a WIN/WIN/WIN/WIN situations. Join in and help yourself and other drivers to make motion the highest priority in your drive.
