I was first drawn to this diagram because of the content it was covering. The title “Why Do Freeways Come To A Stop?” is something I’ve always thought about and the visual description really helps to grasp it. Where the road bends helps to show where traffic slows down and jams up which is a good example of an information design because your mind easily makes the connection. I also feel the design is very youthful and easy to read and comprehend. The funnel effect is also easy to understand based on the images side- by-side. The faint red oval behind the second funnel also helps to easily make the connection that there’s a problem with that method.
