I don't understand why people constantly bitch about it, except that they just want to bitch about something. If you choose to live in an area w/a lot of traffic, then a lot of traffic is a way of life. I hold to the notion that we all do what we want to do. Like Doesn't Matter & me, as examples: Doesn't Matter would hate living somewhere that had a lot of traffic, so he doesn't. I like living in or near a city or metropolis, so I deal w/traffic & don't allow it to blow my serenity. I think we make choices. And some people choose to get stressed out or p!ssed off about traffic, when it's just part of life. Maybe a shift in perception would help: this is where I choose to live. Traffic is a way of life. Why stress over it? How can you feel empowered & enjoy yourself instead of being aggravated?
