Gas tax dollars, where does it go?

Feb 20, 18 • SETTP NewsNo Comments

The amount of money coming from the state and federal government for road construction is shrinking.

And a big chunk of the state’s gas tax that most of us expect to pay for roads is actually paying for other things.

In the world of make believe you gas up and go. In real life traffic, construction and toll roads are the reality.

Drivers such as Angie Fitzgerald are tired of paying the price.

How DFW Traffic Compares to L.A

Feb 6, 18 • In the PressNo Comments

The Dallas-Fort Worth area has been ranked the 10th most congested city in the U.S., but that’s an improvement from 2016, an INRIX survey released Monday says.

The transportation analytics firm says Dallas-Fort Worth drivers spent an average of 54 hours sitting in traffic jams in 2017.

The report shows traffic is improving. In 2016, drivers spent 59.4 hours in DFW traffic.

That could be attributed to the new TEXpress Lanes on Interstate 35E from Denton to Dallas. The Dallas Horseshoe project where I-30 and I-35 meet opened last summer.

That cost of 2017 congestion equaled to $1,674 per driver, which includes the cost of time, wear and tear on the roads, fuel costs and the social cost of emissions, the report says.

How does all this compare with L.A.?

Drivers in the City of Angels spent 102 hours sitting in traffic congestion and cost $2,828 per driver. L.A. is the world’s most congested city, the report says.

Dallas-Fort Worth also improved its global rank. It’s the world’s 28th most congested city compared to being ranked 16 in 2016, the report says.

How traffic in Texas cities rank against all global cities:

Dallas – 28

Houston – 37

Austin – 72

San Antonio – 297

McAllen – 663

Top congested American cities:

Los Angeles

New York City

San Francisco

Atlanta

Miami, FL

Washington, D.C.

Boston

Chicago, IL

Seattle, WA

Dallas, Texas

Houston, Texas

Portland, OR

San Diego

Investigating the Mysteriously Feel-Good Texas Turnaround

Jan 29, 18 • In the PressNo Comments

The car radio is playing something loud and twangy. It’s late summer, so bugs are peppering your windshield like dollops of rain as you speed comfortably in the wide, smooth lanes. And then you realize you just missed your dang exit.

Relax, partner—you’re in Texas. Just take the next one, and stay to the left as the off ramp descends towards the intersection. Follow the signage that leads you into the U-turn lane—a curving bypass that traces the underpass’ embankment. Without stoplights, cross traffic, or stress, you about-face to the other side of the highway and head back to where you’re going.
