Traffic in many metropolitan areas is getting worse, but people might not be as upset about it as they used to be. With all the distractions a new car provides a driver, many are much happier about sitting in traffic. Yes, it sounds silly. I think it’s scary. There are all sorts of stories in the article about people who work while in traffic.

That’s funny, because I thought the act of driving is what the person was supposed to be concentrating on. Maybe I’m just bitter because I just narrowly missed getting absolutely destroyed by a little sports car driving at least 65 on a 30 mph road that didn’t even slow down for a stop sign.
