I was visiting my dad at his house downtown. I live at the very north end of the city. I left his house at around 5:00 PM to drive home and cook dinner for my wife. I got home just before 5:30 PM. The last time I drove in rush hour traffic it took me an hour to get home. Has unemployment gotten so bad that it has actually reduced the amount of rush hour traffic? My trip took half the time it normally would. Most of the streets I drove on had been reduced to one lane due to construction. Have you guys noticed a change in your commute or traffic in your area?
