Yep. Sometimes it doesn't take much.
But they didn't really "stop evolution". What they, and many others responsible for the development of transportation did was reverse the trend for humans to separate into isolated groups where they would have eventually evolved into separate species.
Evolution is largely dependent upon the environment one lives in. Modern technology has changed the environment in good and bad ways, changing how we evolve as a species.
