To drive slowly by a car accident (or site having emergency vehicles) and turn the head to see anything gory.

This act exacerbates traffic delays.
Crews pulled the wreckage off the highway, but drivers continued to rubberneck and cause delays.

The reaction of drivers as they pass by an accident scene; to drive aimlessly while looking away from the road at something happening off road.
The accident caused a traffic jammed, which was worsened by all the passers-by and their rubber necks checking it out.

When one finds it necessary to slow down and look at the car pulled over to the side of the road, whether the reason being an accident, a cop pulling them over, their engine died, whatever. Either way, it's fucking annoying, because it causes unnecessary traffic.
Hey, what's with all this traffic?

I guarantee it's some dumbasses rubbernecking.

15 minutes later, they see a car pulled over on the side of the road, and the traffic suddenly gets better.

Damn rubberneckers!
