To put it in simple terms, we blow up a lot of money sitting in traffic day in and day out.  Traffic congestion not only takes a toll on your mental & physical well being, but it also brings home a lot of economic pain. It is nice to see someone layout all this important statistics in an easy to understand, colorful visual.

So, how do we fix this mess? A good start would be to move towards transit-oriented development and provide good, cost-effective transit connectivity to the suburbs.. And add some bike lanes; etc, etc.  The solutions are plenty but we have to start somewhere before we go bankrupt.. soon!
