TQ – Traffic intelligence
There is a hostile atmosphere on Gothenburg streets. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are clearly irritated by each other. A recent study shows that all the groups think that they show more consideration than they receive. Following traffic regulations is one thing, but something else is necessary. We can call it TQ. Just like EQ it is all about seeing things from another person’s point of view, and has to do with understanding how other people think and behave in different traffic situations. As it is so hard to get other people to change, it is best to start with ourselves. Try to show consideration, try not to judge others too harshly and don’t forget to smile. That’s a good start!
