When scientists opened up the human genome, they expected to find the genetic components of common traits and diseases. But they were nowhere to be seen. Brendan Maher shines a light on six places where the missing loot could be stashed away.

No-Left-Turn Superstreets

Jan 20 2011 Published by under Ramblings

Didn’t mythbusters do a thing on this too? but with gas savings?

Comparative studies of Superstreet intersections and regular intersections by North Carolina State University have shown that overall, cars move through Superstreet intersections about 20% faster. There are 43% fewer accidents, and 63% fewer accidents that resulted in injuries. I’m sure it’s going to be difficult, if not impossible, to convince drivers that making three extra turns just to go in a straight line is actually the most efficient way to go, but for roads that are already bulging with cars, it might be worth the effort.
