Heck, if they'd just enforce the slower traffic keep right law the problem would solve itself.

Widening a road never ends congestion, it just lets more cars be congested. The only solution to congestion is more alternate routes.

Better now, when the next oil crisis or price leap hits will be too late.
Well, yes, "alternate routes" would include bus, light rail, etc.

Damn you clowns are so naive still. This is Henderson County not ATL. I would suspect most of the traffic on I-26 is not local. Get a horse and buggy and stay off I-26.

Enjoying your lefty circle jerk?

Like her or not, what does it matter? Discuss the issue, don't try and smear by association.
It wasn't intended as a smear. It's just that I recalled Eva being sucessful in getting this issue struck down the first time around.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe hers was a tree-hugger issue.
