Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion

special events and parades and such will continue and you really can't do anything to reduce the congestion those events cause.

Sure you can - cancel them all, since they only benefit a small minority of the population at the expense of the great motoring majority.

When you are traveling down a street and the following signal turns red just as yours turns green time after time, it hardly seems it is a coincidence.

It's obviously not a coincidence, but it could simply be clock drift or a lack of coordination.

in the past 20 years hundreds or thousands of traffic signals have been placed in front of virtually every school and are in effect at all times when they should only flash yellow when school is not in session and they are not in sync with other signals.

There are signals in front of schools, not at intersections, that turn red during non-school hours?

I have never seen a car weaving in and out of lanes on a highway going 20 mph faster than everyone else be pulled over. Too much emphasis is placed on parking violators and not enough on dangerous drivers which is much worse.

Highway patrol and traffic enforcement are different departments. Besides, illegally parked vehicles are fish in a barrel (and a safety issue). Pulling over a reckless motorist requires an officer to be present when it happens.
