You know how practically the whole metro area is controlled by traffic lights, and when you're in traffic it feels that the whole road is crowded. Well it's not, it's because the traffic moves in blocks. If you stand next to any major road, a big lump of traffic comes by, all tail-gating, changing lanes and such like, then nothing for a while, then another lump of traffic. This is the result of the traffic being controlled by lights.
Well, I want to know how to drive in those quiet bits between the lumps of traffic, I've tried by pulling over and waiting for everyone to bugger off, but I just end up at the next red light and before you know it, I'm surrounded by traffic again. I've also tried burning everyone else off (up to the speed limit as quickly as possible) but some young dickwad in an old commodore thinks you're up for a race, and before you know it you're surrounded by P-platers with the delusion that they're actually Craig Lowndes.
So if anyone has a technique for how to drive in the bits between the lumps please do tell.
