A group is trying to guilt Atlanta Drivers into following the rules of the road on I-75.

The linked article from the Atlanta Journal Constitution gives a thumbnail overview of the plan by CARma to encourage drivers on I-75 through Atlanta to obey the speed limit, allow merging, and not to tailgate. All this to avoid those minor incidents that can cause enormous congestion problems.

I’m all for this. I allow merges all the time, and I don’t generally tailgate (of course, “tailgate” is entirely relevant to the prevailing traffic density), but I don’t see the traffic slowing down much.

Ask me in a week.

    Wow. Boston could really use this. Many cities could.
