Almost everywhere I’ve ever driven, from huge cities to bedroom suburbs, traffic congestion has been a daily problem.
Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Tampa, Seattle, Minneapolis, Indianapolis — cities whose interstate highways have up to a dozen lanes of traffic going in every direction — but at least part of every day, every lane is filled to capacity with vehicles creeping along at geriatric walking speeds.
Depending on your ecological perspective, the entire U.S. either has way too many cars on the road, or way too few lanes of roadway to efficiently move all of its traffic.
And don’t even mention public transportation. It’s not clean, safe, convenient or reliable; it often requires many confusing, expensive, and time-wasting transfers; and it doesn’t stop close enough to your home, work, shopping, and other important places to make it your main mode of transportation. For example, I often take homeless people in my car, so that they can do numerous errands. Often, in 20-30 minutes, we arrive at a destination that would have taken them 2-1/2 hours to get to on a series of buses. Likewise, in 2 or 3 hours, we often accomplish what would have taken them 2-5 days if they had used the local public bus system.
I don’t know what the traffic congestions solution is, other than to try to avoid as much of that congestion as you can.
