less-traffic

Here’s something we can all agree on – with one of the worst commutes in the nation, traffic in Metro Atlanta is tied up in knots. People can’t get to work. Companies can’t move goods.

“My wife and I recently went to see Book of Mormon at the Fox. Tried to see is more like it. Coming from Lawrenceville, we gave ourselves a solid hour to make our way down into the belly of the beast. General evening traffic and an ill-timed accident ensured that we didn’t get to our seats until almost the intermission break. This is just one instance in many that have made living in Atlanta unbearable. I’m voting yes on July 31.”
