Sometimes it can take much longer than expected to your destination due to long lines caused by traffic jams. It seems like each year there are more cars on the street, because of over populating cities and more teenagers learning hot to drive. By taking into account today's technology and research on traffic, traffic problems are becoming a thing of the past.There are so many ways to prevent and understand how traffic accumulates. Today's technology is filled with ways to help one get to his destination with ease. Widgets are helpful to download maps onto your computer to get a better understanding on how traffic is in your area. They can also be installed onto your G.P.S if you have one in your car. Software developers drive into traffic jams just like us. They have developed lots of widgets, gadgets and browser add-ons. This has helped drivers move along faster for many years and keeps on improving through time. Carpooling has become more advanced in some countries over the years. It is no longer your friends or coworkers any more. In Germany and even in India they have developed webpages that let you look for a ride in exchange for paying for half the gas it costs to get to your destination. You can even offer a ride to someone to make your trip cost less.Controlling traffic is a very deep matter and will take many years to fix. When I see most inventions in movies come to reality one way or another, I think I'll see flying cars come to town to make our transportation much faster!
