I think the point is that they turned and then "starved" because they couldn't free themselves. But if that's the argument, we haven't seen any evidence that zombies can starve.

I thought the point was, why would they turn in the first place? Sure a few could have died from car accidents, but everyone in a huge traffic jam dying? Does not make sense. Neither does it make sense for people to starve to death (or dehydrate to death) in their cars because they were surrounded by zombies and could not get away (why would they still have seat belts on? )

The whole traffic jams full of dead people in their cars situation just does not make sense.

Nobody would starve to death in a car without trying something.

Plus, like others have said, they usually have seatbelts on.

Totally agree. As well as the "diners" just sitting there. It's like a wave of something came along and instantly killed some people while others turned to walkers.

I'm very intrigued on the back story (if there is one).

I forget the details but don't you have to be infected (in you already) to turn Z. Perhaps these people were not ?

I dunno, clutching at straws here

What we learned from the CDC guy is that everybody is infected.

The whole thing really doesn't make much sense, and they're probably better off dealing with it the way they are...i.e., not dealing with it. Any additional information they can provide would probably just make it make less sense.
