What’s spring/summer in DC without Yet Another Article about how much time we spend in traffic?
The study, which was based on 2003 data, says that DC denizens spend 69 hours per year stuck in traffic.
Seeing as how that data is now out of date, it’s probably worse now.
Blah blah, our traffic is almost as bad as LA and San Francisco. Blah blah, expanding population, not enough road capacity. We’ve heard it all before, but if you’re interested, there it is again.
Of course, this morning traffic on the 395 was light and it took 15 minutes to go the seven miles from Tom’s house to his office, and then another 30 minutes to go the one mile from Tom’s office to my parking garage, so go figure.
