How to stop traffic jams?

I'm trying to find out how to reduce traffic jams (in Holland but I think that this problem is everywhere the same). I'm doing it with two others and I'm competing against a lot of other groups, all secondary school pupils. The group whit the best idea wins 2.500 euro.

Because I don't drive a car and because I'm only 15, I don't really have experience with traffic jams. If you could help me with some ideas and answers, that would be grate.

Some questions:
1. How does a traffic jam actually start?
2. Why is the trafic not able to move faste. I mean when the people at the front drive faster, everybody could?
3. Why get some lanes closed en why is it not one but sometimes two or even more?

A solution I was thinking of was: A road white four lanes (at least). The two on the right have a minimum speed of 85 km/h and a top speed of 105 km/h. These two are for slower traffic and trucks. The two on the left have a minimum speed of 105 km/h and a top speed of 130 km/h. These two are for faster traffic.

All help is welcome.
