    "Traffic congestion dropped 30% last year from 2010 in the USA's 100 largest metropolitan areas, driven largely by higher gas prices and a spotty economic recovery, according to a new study by a Washington-state firm that tracks traffic flows."...

    "We're experiencing a stop-and-go economy right now," Bak says. "The data indicate the country may be experiencing the jobless recovery economists warned of during the recession."

    Gridlock eases in many metro areas

    kudos, mr president :thup:

    I keep waiting for scooters to get popular.
    If it wasn't for the stigma of "only drunk drivers ride one" - I imagine sales for these things would be much, much higher. I thought several times of buying stock in one of the majors - but have held back because of the stigma attached to them.
