By employing overly simple rules for mimicking driving behavior in urban traffic, it can be seen a synergistic effect between motorists and motorcyclists in an agent-based environment. When motorcyclists ride in between the available space of stopped or slow-moving vehicles, motorists are forced to reduce their lane-changing maneuvers without affecting their speed, but the resulting mixed traffic proved to be increased. Further suggestions on the possible ways to study and apply these synergistic effects in the real world are presented
