Ah ha! Not necessarily. Recall Ryan's repeated argument that as you slow traffic down you find fewer trips. Also, if you can lessen the number of people waiting for a left turn through two signals and things of that sort, you're lowering emissions and fuel consumption.

So no...it can also mean slowing the fast traffic down (which actually uses less fuel anyway) and lowering the amount of stopped traffic
