Popular Mechanics brings to attention the Traffic Simulation which, with the use of a loop of highway, allows you to test out the causes of traffic jams and slow-downs.

The simulator shows how jams naturally occur with a bunch of cars driving around a ring. You can toy with the controls, changing the settings for car density and speed limits to see how that affects the flow of vehicles. The site promises that other shapes, like an on-ramp, will soon be available.
