Out of work? Look on the bright side: traffic flow is better.
A couple of years ago we didn’t drive because gas cost too much. Now, we’re not driving because we’re out of work.
As it turns out, one of America’s darkest economic periods has led to more free-flowing highways, something that will probably be fleeting as the country’s economic engine regains steam.
A new study out today from the Texas Transportation Institute shows that the country saw a historic dip in traffic jams in 2008 and 2009.
