Apparently we need to figure out how to get this software into our GPS units. Heck, I’d just be happy if the GPS actually knew what the real traffic flow was like on all streets and could accurately route one around or through it.
The LA Times had an interesting article yesterday about ways to combat traffic. I have been saying for years that we need to switch all freeways to toll roads and charge commuters based on when and how far they drive. If we hit people with charges to their pocketbook, they will quickly learn to take mass transit, move closer to work, carpool or travel at off times. Traffic problems will go away.
I had never thought about the parking situation and how something like that could do the same thing. I certainly see that it is possible to get people to leave their cars at home if it cost too much to park at work.
