Eric Lucero: PURPOSEFUL TRAFFIC CONGESTION BY CENTRAL PLANNERS

A related report released by the Center of the American Experiment determined the Metropolitan Council and MnDOT pursue policies that make the traffic congestion problem worse.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) released its annual “Metropolitan Freeway Congestion Report” Monday this week confirming what hard hardworking Minnesotans already know and experience on a daily basis:
TRAFFIC CONGESTION IS BAD AND GETTING WORSE!!

Traffic is at its highest congestion level since MnDOT began the annual highway traffic survey in 1993. This year’s report revealed drivers are caught in congestion 25% of the time.

A related report released by the Center of the American Experiment found here, determined the Metropolitan Council and MnDOT pursue policies that make the traffic congestion problem worse.

The fact government central planners at MnDOT and the Metropolitan Council deliberately engineered a policy shift away from comprehensive traffic congestion relief to instead focus on encouraging people exchange their cars for transit and other alternatives to driving is directly responsible for wasted time, wasted fuel, and increased pollution MN drivers frustratingly endure every day.
