Low and behold, if you were watching CBS Sunday Morning today you may have notice that Mo Rocca did a piece on Tom Vanderbilt’s excellent book, Traffic and even spent a good deal of time hanging out in Hans Mondermans traffic circle in Drachten. It’s a pretty fluffy piece but cool all the same and there were a couple of statistical tidbits that I had previously missed in my research, like:
‘the lowest number of accidents each year occur in February while the peak is in July’.
I do really like how he actually took the time to videotape the various things drivers do when they’re bored and the Life Hammer piece was well placed.
Missed it and want to have a look?
And don’t forget to check out the piece on the dancing traffic cop of Providence as well. Perhaps the Austin Ballet should have a little collaboration with the Austin Police Department. With tights or without?

Enjoy and let me know what you think.
