Be a ‘nudgebreaker’

December 26, 2008

In stopped traffic, have you ever noticed that when one driver nudges ahead, everyone behind usually does the same thing? It seems we do that in any lineup, whether at the bank, grocery store or airport.

Does this ripple effect get anyone where they’re going any sooner? Well, no. But everyone does end up burning an extra shot of fuel each time they nudge forward.

So the next time you’re stopped traffic, be the ‘nudgebreaker’ and resist the urge to edge forward. You’ll save fuel for yourself and everyone in the line behind you.
