What Causes Highway Traffic? We Explain.
So – what causes traffic? It can generally be broken down into 6 categories.
- The standardization of the American work schedule. People who commute typically work 9 to 5. They get on the highway at eight… and here’s the thing: highways were not meant for everyone who needs them to be using them simultaneously.
- Our highways have TOO many entrance ramps. Egress on to the highway and off is too convenient. Fewer ramps would mean fewer cars.
