Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Balaker and Staley shine new light on the problem of traffic congestion in this easily accessible book. Though often dismissed as a minor if irritating nuisance, congestion constrains our personal and professional lives, making it harder to find a good job, spend time with our family, and maintain profitable businesses. The Road More Traveled both demonstrates these insidious effects and offers new policy solutions for bringing our roads up to speed.

Book News Annotation:

Fellows with the Reason Foundation, a nonprofit thinktank based in Los Angeles, are not among those who think that traffic congestion on U.S. roads is inevitable. Not do they favor the alternatives of public transit and carpool lanes. Drawing on national and international experiences, they advocate for such "congestion busters" as building more highways, high-occupancy toll lanes, and telecommuting. Staley also teaches urban economics at the U. of Dayton. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The Road More Traveled shines a new light on the problem of traffic congestion in this easily accessible book. You'll learn how we can reclaim our mobility if we are willing to follow successful examples from overseas, where innovations in infrastructure and privatization have made other nations stronger and more competitive. By throughly debunking the myths that keep our policy makers trapped in traffic, this book argues that we can and should build our way out of congestion and into a fast-paced future.
