Article states: "Upon arriving at a red light, drivers apply the brakes, pick up their mobile devices, and begin reading and sending e-mails. The signal to resume driving comes not from the green light but from some motorist in the back tapping politely on the horn."

This is why I begin honking immediately after stopping. It removes the latency, which can otherwise be annoying at a light with a short green cycle. :-)
