The Kid Should See This

Why, Traffic, Why?

Traffic during rush hour or when an accident has happened on the road ahead are both expected, but there are a lot of avoidable reasons for traffic in cities all over the globe: Slowing down to see something on the side of the road, messy merging, and challenges within a city’s infrastructure.

ATTN and motion graphics studio Down the Street created this sponsored video to help spread the word about what causes traffic and how we might mitigate it: Why, Traffic, Why?
