Waiting an Hour in Traffic
By Charlotte Tanner
November 13, 2006
I read with amusement Valerie Cooper's letter about not being
able to function because of having to wait in traffic. I am
currently in Louisville, KY serving as an Americorps Volunteer,
the folks here wait for more than an hour every day in traffic,
seemingly by choice.
Although it may appear that they have alternative routes, these
routes are also clogged and people are waiting, waiting.
Life in the "lower 48" appears to be spent mainly in
cars in traffic, you guessed it, WAITING. So you good people
in Ketchikan that want bridges, and lots of development, better
think about the amount of waiting in traffic that comes along
with these things.
