Have any of you seen all of our lovely new traffic meters? With all of this extra money the state has floating around, they decided to build lights at the all of the freeway entraces betweenUnv. Pkw and who knows how far north. Everytime we try to get on the freeway we have to wait 15 min to get onto the entrace ramps. I know that they're trying to have less cars on the freeway and thus free up traffic, but all it does is slow everything down. First, you have to wait to get on it. Once you finally get on the ramp, you have to gun it to try (unsuccessfully) to get up to speed, wasting gas. Then when you're finally on your way home, you have to keep slamming on your brakes for all of the cars entering the freeway 35 mph! Even if the freeway is emptier, it's slower than ever!! I am not a fan.

Sounds like they need you on the traffic board. You have lots of good points. Love your new back ground. M

AMEN! Whoever it is that makes the road decisions in UT needs to be fired. They can't seem to think far enough ahead to make decent decisions...like actually building on ramps for the freeway. Everything they do seems to be reactionary instead of assessing what we will need 5-10 years from now and doing that. Amen Rachel...AMEN

You can't say Amen to Rachel, she's not God!
