  •  If they build it, (7+ / 0-)

    the cars keep coming, along with more drive thrus and big box stores.  Exhibit A :  Atlanta, Ga.  

    You cannot build your way out of congestion.

    •  From the Atlanta 'burbs, I agree. (4+ / 0-)

      I live in Cobb County--northwest metro Atlanta. The most distressing thing of all is to see other areas in Georgia, even in metro Atlanta, and the southeast failing to learn from Atlanta metro's mistakes. Even Cobb, which by now should damn well know better, repeats the same pattern of congestion development over and over.
