This work presents strong evidence that human car-following behaviour can be described by a linear model with no more than three parameters to an amazing degree of precision. From this result it can be inferred that any microscopic traffic flow model can be composed of the car-following behaviour plus a couple of rules that fixes boundaries of the behaviour in terms of limitations to speed, acceleration, and safety. These limitations, however, usually have a clear physical meaning and understanding and are the only non-linearities needed to built a microscopic traffic flow model.
