About the Event
Would you be surprised that road rage can be good for society? Or that most crashes happen on sunny, dry days? That our minds can trick us into thinking the next lane is moving faster? Or that you can gauge a nation’s driving behavior by its levels of corruption? These are only a few of the remarkable dynamics that Tom Vanderbilt explores in his book, “Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us).” At the CTS Spring Luncheon, Vanderbilt will share the complex web of physical, psychological, and technical factors that explain how traffic works, why we drive the way we do, and what our driving says about us.
