In 2013 a group of
researchers at UC Berkeley studied human behavior at 4-way intersections in California. Their research indicated that those who drove “premium” models of cars were more likely “to jump their turn in the 4-way rotation”, thus postulating that those with financial privilege are often less likely to show consideration for the needs of others in the community.
