Forbes has rated the best and worst US cities for commuters. Atlanta rated #1 as the worst major city for commuters. Here’s what the article said:
Here, in the fastest-growing city in America, more people flood the roadways than the infrastructure can handle. Commuters spend 60 hours a year stuck in traffic, second only to those in Los Angeles. If that weren’t bad enough, Atlanta is so spread out that only 29% of drivers get to and from work in less than 20 minutes, the third worst rate in the country, and 13% spend more than an hour getting to work, the fourth worst rate in the country. The local train system doesn’t service the entire city, and thus fails to relieve the pressure.
In our trucking accident law practice, we often see what happen can happen when tired truckers enter metro Atlanta at rush hour. You can imagine.
