I want to say I was in Houston and they have traffic lights to merge on ramps onto the highway that are triggered by congestion. It didn't seem to work that day but interesting none the less.

Usually I can pick out other manual transmission cars in traffic and we make a convoy trying to reduce the amount of times we have to depress the clutch, I'd rather cruise at 20mph than constant stop and go
