Sound Effects: traffic noise
Motorist: Agh this traffic! I wish there was a better way!
Narrator: Maybe there is a better way! Here’s an idea for beating the traffic trap.
Consider arranging errands so that you make the least number of left turns. Lets say you have three stops. Two of them on the right side of Main St. and a third in between them on the left. The natural tendency is to go to them in the order which they appear. But with a little forethought you’ll realize that requires two extra left turns, both going in and coming out of the business on the left. The better method is to go to all the businesses on the right first, then catch the ones on the left as you return.
Consistently using this method can save several minutes in travel time and that means more time for what really matters.
