"Dramatic population increases in Riverside and San Bernardino counties are expected to mean that the Inland Empire's traffic headaches will only grow worse--despite millions of dollars being spent on freeway construction, carpool lanes, mass transit and other transportation programs.The amount of time drivers in the two counties spent caught in traffic increased 190% over the last five years, a rate far outpacing those in other Southland counties, according to a study by the California Department of Transportation. Motorists in Los Angeles and Ventura counties endured 30% more congestion, while the hours of congestion increased just 11% in Orange County, the study showed."
