    On the topic of crossing traffic with science, I saw something once comparing traffic behaviour on
    motorways to that of compressible fluid dynamics. In particular, the existence of propogating and
    standing shock-waves and nozzles (ie, at supersonic speeds you decelerate a flow with what you'd
    think was a nozzle, just like motorways - put in a constriction and the speed drops).

    Has anyone else ever come across this?
