Save time, money, and energy by driving smoothly


Gary Lauder, managing partner of Lauder Partners and the co-creator of the Socrates at the Aspen Institute gives a talk on how road design can make a difference in saving us both time and money while saving the planet. He rethinks the need for standard signalized and un-signalized traffic intersections, particularly the roundabout as opposed to stoplights and four-way stop signs. Less braking and acceleration means more time, money, and fuel saved by the drivers as well as more safety. And as Gary Lauder points out, “They’re expensive to install, but more expensive not to.”
