Colorado D.O.T. Advice For Reducing Traffic Jams

Officials at the Colorado Department of Transportation say the "Zipper Merge" can reduce traffic delays up to 40 percent.

They say, in order to keep the flow of cars moving smoothly, you and I should use the method, which is more efficient. We should merge late so our vehicles flow in like the "teeth" on a zipper.
