Chicago Area Struggles With Increasing Traffic Problems

No shit, Sherlock.

I don’t have to deal with too much of it, but Joe does, and it sucks. Especially because I get to deal with his sour puss when he finally makes it home. ;)

I can’t blame him, though. When you know you can get from point A to point B in a half hour if it wasn’t for all the other cars in your way, most of them getting into stupid accidents that further slow everyone else, but your actual commute often tops an hour and a half, it can be extremely frustrating. All that wasted, unproductive time!

I don’t know why they can’t come up with a cool tunnel system to handle express traffic. This is my vision: they build tunnels extending from the city in all four directions, with only one entrance and exit. Now, when you get into the tunnel, you’re locked into a conveyer-type contraption like they use at the car wash. Except for this thing tops 100 MPH and zips you off to your exit. Since all the cars are evenly spaced and not controlled by the driver, there’s no concern for accidents.

Could you imagine how much nicer commuting to the city would be? I suspect one day something to that nature will be constructed. Until then, I have three words for Joe to help battle the boredom and frustration: books on cd.
