Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion

This is what happens when you are so sure you are right, your mind is closed to all other opinions. Thanks for rewriting my number 1. Where did I mention truck traffic in number 1? You did. I didn't. Numbers 1 and 6 the way I wrote them are two separate thoughts. I also never put cars in one category and automobiles into another. Quit making up things to prove ridiculous points.

Do you have any idea what type of density is required to build a subway line? Just because an area is considered urban, it does not mean, a subway is justified. Sure, many areas can benefit by improved bus service and by all means, that should be done, but don't forget, buses use roads too.

You obviously are one who hates cars and do not care about congestion because you do not drive and it is not your problem. So your attitude is let them suffer and do nothing to help them, and nothing will help. You are incredibly selfish. the fact is I can cite where improvements have been made and congestion has been reduced. No new cars came to replace that congestion according to your misguided theory which is only true if an entirely new highway is built.

I have also said nothing about everything being subservient to the automobile. Green time should be increased for pedestrians where necessary and I am a firm believer in mass transit and also support accommodating bicycles where appropriate and stated such. That does not mean though that you inconvenience the masses to help five percent of the population by reducing road space for other vehicles to accommodate cyclists on every roadway like you believe.

And if you can say that a bicycle is a viable alternative to driving a car with a straight face, you are truly laughable. Letme see you transport a trunkful of groceries on a bike or travel from New York to Boston on a bike. Or arrive at your office hot and sweaty or soaked in rainwater after an hour or two bike ride.

The problem with you and people like you who require sources for all beliefs is that you have no idea what common sense is because you do not have any. All you know is what you read in books. If I told you that people eat when they are hungry, you would ask me what is my source for that belief.
