There is no arguing about the fact that traffic jams are frustrating and often exhausting, but the race to overtake others just to move an inch or two forward in an hour long traffic queue can be dangerous. It’s not just you alone who is stuck, there are others too who are struggling with the same scenario, so try to be cautious and extra patient since you are surrounded by lots of other vehicles. Remember, the more you grovel, the more impatient you’ll become and the more you’ll put your safety as well as that of the others at stake.

Let’s start jamming!
Stick to one lane: People often think that changing lanes while stuck in a massic traffic jam will help them move forward in the queue. Well if you are also thinking the same thing then sorry to disappoint you but NO! Swerving in and out of lanes will only going to make the situation worst for your as well as for other motorists and may also cause an accident.
Slow Down: Well this particular tip is a rule of thumb in almost all car crisis. When you have your car in full control and the speed in check, you can surpass any car issue. Remember patience is the key. Hoarding other cars to move along fast or zig-zagging while trying to get in the fastest moving lane, won’t help you much. Since you remain in close proximity with other vehicle owners while stuck in traffic, slowing down can avoid potential collisions and accidents.

Turn off your engine: But only when you know you are not going to move forward in line for next few minutes. This reduces fuel consumption and also lowers emissions. We all are privy to the long haul traffic jams in urban areas (since we most are living in one) and their contribution to rising smog and poor air quality.
Use Indicators: Roads are filled with reckless and aggressive drivers and they often feel that using indicators or signals on road is optional. While driving you are surrounded by lots of other drivers, it is necessary to let them know of your intentions and indicators are placed in cars just to fulfill this particular function.
