Three-fourths of Americans believe that being smarter about development and improving public transportation are better long-term solutions for reducing traffic congestion than building new roads, according to a survey sponsored by the National Association of Realtors® and Smart Growth America.

The 2007 Growth and Transportation Survey details what Americans think about how development affects their immediate community. Nearly three-quarters of Americans are concerned about the role growth and development play in climate change, as well as remaining concerned about traffic congestion. Half of those surveyed think improving public transit would be the best way to reduce congestion, and 26 percent believe developing communities that reduce the need to drive would be the better alternative. Only one in five said building new roads was the answer.

Make students walk to and from school, hopefully up hill both ways, and in the snow with no boots. Or tell them the earlier they get to school the less congestion and the better the parking. Or, let them all be "virtual students", there is no parking problem on the information stupor-highway. Or, make it a life lesson "Life isn't perfect nor is it fair, learn to deal." Or, be comforted that student enrollments are declining and the problem is likely to decrease over time. Or, quit buying them cars, paying for their gas and insurance and teach them to hitch a ride with those few who have cars. Or, buy them a bus pass during bad weather and a bicycle for good weather.

But for Gods sake, quit pampering and solving all their problems for them. You'll just spoil them and they will never learn to be independent.

Make driving to school a privilege earned by GPA. A 3.2 should do it.

Make the loop around FSHS a 2 lane one-way street.
