Your maps says ten minutes this way, ten minutes the next. But there’s a catch. You follow your maps, but then the light turns red. You know that there is a better, alternative route because you know these streets like the back of your hand.

And so you take that alternative route. You can’t be certain it is faster, no one can know for sure. Only, you just know it is, because for you, it is the path more traveled.
