What does the theorem in queuing theory state regarding single versus multiple lines?

Since traffic crash data has been recorded in the United States, the national trend in fatalities has been on the decline while the population and vehicle miles travelled is on the rise. However, in 2016, more than 37,000 people died on the highway, with over 1,000 of them occurring in Michigan alone. During that same year, there were a little over 15,000 homicides and approximately 43,000 died from suicide. The question is why so much of our attention and outrage is given to homicides (15,000 deaths) but not to suicides and traffic crash deaths (80,000 deaths) which are more than five times greater? Vanderbilt has a lot to say about this issue.Students are required to submit a written book review of Tom Vanderbilts Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us).[1] In order to receive full credit for this portion of the final grade, students must comply with the following instructions.Students are encouraged to discuss the book and answers to the specific questions with other students. However, the final review submitted by the student must be the students own work without further assistance.The review should be presented in the following format. Students should use complete sentences, correct grammar, write in paragraph format, and avoid simply making a list of items. The first page should be the title page with the name of the student, title of the paper, course name, and date submitted. Page numbers should be used on each page, except for the title page.Although it is acceptable to use direct quotes from the book, they should be limited in use and appropriately cited. In other words, most of the paper should be in the students own words.The first two pages are to be a general overview of the book similar to a brief book report. Lines should be single-spaced throughout with double-spaces between paragraphs.In addition to the overview, students must address the following issues separately, and provide answers using the designated letter and number before each answer. Students are not to repeat the question but simply provide the answer, indicating I (A), I (B), etc. The answers should be single-spaced, with double spaces between answers.I. (A) Do you identify with Random Acts respondents who support early merging or Live Free or Die respondents who support later merging? Explain the arguments of each.(B) What did the Texas Survey Institute discover regarding merging difficulties?

Failure to follow the instructions for submitting the book review will adversely impact on this portion of your final grade.The due date for the book review is Friday, February 1st at midnight. However, students may submit the paper anytime between now and then. A one point penalty will be administered for each hour that the paper is submitted after the due date.[1] This is one of the most important books I have ever assigned to students. Understanding and applying the insights contained in this text should reduce the number of deaths, injuries, and property damage from traffic crashes, which is the stated purpose of police enforcement of traffic laws.
