Is there a way of telling the Google Maps route finder that I would prefer the least number of junctions / traffic lights, or if traffic is heavy in areas, the route with least time spent 'sitting'.

A route that is 1 min faster than another, yet involves more stop/start driving can be more frustrating than one which is flowing.

Generally, when routes are within ~3 mins difference of one another, I'm not bothered about the quickest, I just want the least irritating one.
