A clearer path to gridlock-free driving

Last week I was in San Francisco during the Bay Area Rapid Transit strike. I traveled from the airport to the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. The traffic was horrendous, but it kept moving.

The reason? No gridlock. None.

I’ve never seen a blocked intersection in San Francisco. If cars can’t get all the way through an intersection, they stop.

If we could adopt this practice in Boston, we could do a lot better with traffic jams.
