The better the economy, the more traffic congestion – what can YOU do?

 

 

 

 

How has traffic congestion changed since 1982?  According to a recent study by Texas A&M’s Transportation Institute, here are a few of the numbers:

  • the number of hours per commuter lost to traffic delay has nearly tripled, climbing to 54 hours a year;
  • the annual cost of that delay per commuter has nearly doubled, to $1,010;
  • the nationwide cost of gridlock has grown more than tenfold, to $166 billion a year; and
  • the amount of fuel wasted in stalled traffic has more than tripled, to 3.3 billion gallons a year.
