This is really interesting as it says in the article: Why don’t we see double-decker buses simultaneously stopping and going?
Since this is the news at http://www.nature.com/news/2010/100317/full/news.2010.130.html#B1 you may want to read the scientific background, the details about experiment by reading article: O’Connell, A. D. et al. Nature doi:10.1038/nature08967 (2010).
