Traffic Congestion

In 2017, Phoenix was ranked 15 th in the country for worst traffic. As our city grows more each year, so does the traffic. On top of that, the average person in Phoenix spends an extra twenty minutes on their commute each day because of traffic congestion, which is 77 hours in a year. Traffic has many other downfalls outside of wasted time. The number of cars in our city causes pollution to our air. Traffic also creates unneeded stress, anxiety and frustration. Where will we draw the line that we’ve had enough?
