We should also increase the fuel efficiency of our automobile fleet to delay the demand side of this theory from exacting its toll on prices.
You really notice how stupid people drive when you are driving a loaded truck that takes time to speed up and lots of breaking distance.
Running up to a red light, fools will blare by you at 65 mph because the red light is "way in front" of them, then they have to light up their brakes and get down to near zero, and it finally turns green. Then they are packed in a line of cars, and I catch back up to them while cruising at 50 mph the whole time. Did I mention that I didn't have to light up the brakes. Dummies, every time you push the brake pedal you are burning up your brakes, the less you use them, the longer they last. That is just an added bonus to not driving aggressively.
