The quickest journey

Driving from A to B, the shortest, most obvious route has roadworks. Even so, it’s still the quickest route… if you only think about yourself and how long your journey takes.

If you think about the effect you journey the queue has on all the other cars, the accumulated delay you create for all those other drivers, then the better thing to do is to take a route that avoids the roadworks, even if it takes slightly longer for you.

Think more widely.
