Traffic Congestion is Bad and Fuel Prices Too High Lance Rants

Many politicians suggest we spend money building up our infrastructure in America. Indeed good idea, however on second thought consider this; infrastructure and highway planners are to blame for serious congestion throughout the nation. Ever wonder why you are stuck in traffic and feel more as if you are in a parking lot than a Freeway or highway?.Did you know that over 7.8 Billion Dollar economic loss to trucking companies and the economy from congestion slowing trucks alone. Sure, consider your own wasted time in traffic at rush hour.

The American Trucking Association Chairman calls it "A Crime" and merely another version of "breadlines." Personally I could not agree more. But in the trucking industry consider all the other challenges such as; Driver shortages over 20,000 currently in trucking and Diesel prices at $3.00 per gallon. How about all those new and inexperienced drivers take their tolls on safety and efficiency.The flows of transportation are critical, but when traffic is already a mess, it is not a smart time to start doing lots of road construction, unless you are building totally new freeways or highways without impeding the current traffic.

When will we get these politicians to understand that? A sign which says "road construction ahead" really says, we are going to steal 30-minutes of your life and there is not a damn thing you can do about it. You are a prisoner of our political pet project, so deal with it.
