The more aware and more skilled a person is, the better the timing of their accelerations usually are. …Many people wait too long before accelerating when they don’t have to, which impacts their commute and the traffic around them. Where as if, they could be ‘reading traffic’, getting ready, starting to roll and preparing to act, they could have a timely acceleration that benefited themselves and everyone following (even next to them).
If you watch 100 people at an intersection, you’ll probably see over 90% getting a slow and/or late start. Indeed, many more people could clear an intersection if others improved their timing and ‘reading traffic’ skills in order to have a safe beneficial acceleration.
