Transportation Tuesday: Tom Vanderbilt and Traffic

So while I was traveling to and from New York last week I finally had time to read a great book that I got for Christmas.... Traffic by Tom Vanderbilt. The book is really interesting -- it touches on traffic science, sociology, human behavior and culture. It was great, because anyone who has even driven a car can instantly relate to it.

It turns out the Tom Vanderbilt also maintains a companion blog to the book called How We Drive. You can check it out here.
Finally, test your knowledge about traffic with this cool interactive quiz from the New York Times and written by Tom Vanderbilt and read the NY Times review of Traffic here.
