Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion

"... traffic congestion ... causes ..."
- 6 Too many trucks ... agree with that
- + 8 Too many cars !

"... how to fix (or not fix) the causes ..."
- 1 We could have fewer cars & trucks ... incr. in Mass Transit
--- a. Tunnel under Hudson River for freight, fix bridges & tunnels in Bronx so "double stack" RxR cars can make it over Hell Gate Bridge. This will remove a lot of the trucks on the George Washington Bridge & elsewhere in NYC. This must include creation of facilites at Fresh Pond, 65th Street Brooklyn & some spot on Long Island.
--- b. do N-O-T expand expressways & parkways, e.g. creating a deck over the LIE will only encourge more cars/traffic into Manhattan. The point here goes with some of your other comments regarding adjustments & expansions to mass transit because NYC has too much cars & truck traffic so the only way to go is to give commuters an insentive to use mass transit vs. making it easier for them to drive to work.
