Some authors define traffic congestion as a condition on road networks that occurs as use increases, and is characterised by slower speeds, longer trip times and increased queuing. When traffic demand is great enough that the interaction between vehicles slows the speed of the traffic stream, congestion occurs. As demand approaches the capacity of a road (or the intersections along the road), extreme traffic congestion sets in.
