This Demonstration considers the problem of finding the optimal speed in a queue of cars. It allows a sufficient distance between cars that depends on the road quality (due to friction) and the reaction time of the drivers and cars. Short, medium, or long cars carry 1, 1.5, or 2 people per meter of car.
