National Study Finds Traffic Getting Worse
"cross America, drivers were stuck in 3.5 billion hours of delay, wasting 5.7 billion gallons of fuel. TTI officials estimated the national cost of congestion at $63.2 billion. The study again affirmed the helpful effects of public transit, concluding that transit saved $20 billion in congestion costs in 2002...Lack of transportation funding, planning, management and coordination with development patterns were among the reasons cited for worsening traffic."
