No they would not, they would just need to leave a little distance between each of the vehicles to begin with, and then the distance will be constant when both are driven at the same speed. One vehicle driven 1 km/h slower than another would lag further behind over time, so the distance between them would eventually increase to a point where they were no longer in the same place at the same time…
kupfernigk, 07 Sep 2022"So it creates more pollution great." You really didn't get the memo. It choos… moreTraffic jam goes hand in hand with low fuel consumption. They're kindred spirits, in fact.
While standing in traffic jam, you spend less fuel than while driving. Even less if you're packed with start/stop system (which is hurtful to the engine on the long run, but that's another topic).
People who prefer lower fuel consumption often times will drive right around the speed limit (and even 10-20 km/h below it) with very low rpms, which adds to their slower response time.
For instance, a guy drives 50 km/h on a two-lane road with 60 km/h limit. The guy arriving behind the 1st guy also has to drive 50 km/h, or more precisely, 49 km/h (if both drove exactly 50 km/h, then they'd be driving alongside). He cannot take him over because the road is busy/has poor vision/it's a school-friendly area).
Then appears another guy behind them, he has to drive 48 km/h max.
And one by one, you get to the 50th guy who has to literally stand in traffic jam (0 km/h) – and voila, the magic of low fuel consumption.

You really didn't get the memo. It chooses the lowest fuel consumption route which is by definition the lowest pollution one. Since Google Maps does rerouting in real time, if there's a jam it just sends cars round it. We have one particular journey with a known pinch point and GM will often change the route on the way due to traffic conditions.
Yawn, 07 Sep 2022Did you actually read it?Did you see what comment I replied to? He said that if users use it very often to take an eco friendly route. It will just create traffic jams and more pollution. Which I agree to.
I prefer Jeremy Clarkson way:
The sooner I get to home, the better chance that my kids will not sniff glue and remember me spending time with them.
Also small reminder: US military alone during trainings make more CO2 in one day than normal cars(not trucks) in Spain, Germany, Italy, Poland in one month… Also Pentagon building itself emitted more than 24,000 metric tons when typical modern car make around 4.2 per year… who care if you save 0.05grams per month in your car?

I'm in the UK and on the latest update but I don't have the option available.
Well using app called maps.me for me its way better once i download the map i dont need internet anymore to use this app and it works very well.
If the feature becomes popular, the route with the lowest fuel consumption will become the one with the biggest traffic jams.
