I was reading this fascinating article about trying to reduce traffic congestion, and it talks about encouraging drivers to drive at off-peak times. While I think there will always be times when more people are on the road, allowing people to function around their natural sleep schedules (#killyouralarmclock) will spread out the distribution of traffic, since not everyone will be getting up at the same time, then commuting, etc. Less traffic congestion should lead to fewer auto-accidents (and the resulting deaths), and what drivers are on the road will be more alert. It’s a no-brainer, folks. A well-rested society is a safer, happier, better functioning society.
