Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion

I finally saw that thinking in action on the strip in Las Vegas in 2010. It works quite well.

Then you should have seen that Las Vegas Boulevard still experiences extreme congestion despite being 11 lanes and more than 150 feet wide with multiple turn lanes and your vaunted overpasses. There is no more clear cut example of just how sisyphean a task attempting to "cure" congestion really is.

You propose to have the city spend millions of dollars on infrastructure to maintain the automobiles primacy on city streets, but the only example you can find does not prevent congestion.
