Sounds awfully familiar. :rolleyes:

Yes, Cobb County, GA.  The mecca of transit solutions.

Good to see Cooper solving problems so quickly!

You said and I thought it. More of the same poor decision making process coming out of the mayors office. Different face, same brain.

Has anyone here read "Traffic" by Tom Vanderbilt? It was recommended by the host of a show I watch on YouTube and wondered if anyone here has thoughts on it.

I read it and I don't remember anything about it so I guess that says something. It may be of interest to someone else, but I suppose as a Traffic Engineer I didn't learn anything new.
