“Every mile is two in winter.”
It took friends over three hours to drive home yesterday! Is it the weather or is it other factors?
While the weather certainly played a part in traffic delays, I believe another factor is a lack of effective mass transportation. According to Hanford News, the Hanford Nuclear Reservation has 3,124 full-time employees. I cross through Hanford traffic to get to work. How many of these people carpool? This morning I counted 37 cars, with only one car occupying two passengers. Just saying, it’s food for thought.
I’m a huge advocate for mass transportation. With the exponential growth of our population, we need to plan our cities around mass transit. What good is a four-lane highway if it’s four lanes of stopped traffic!?
