The Texas Transportation Institute recently released its annual report on traffic in the United States. Traffic is not only frustrating, but it may also be dangerous. As people become increasingly late, they may become aggressive and if more cars are on the road then collisions may be more likely. Accordingly, it is important to know the traffic risks in Pennsylvania.
According to the study:
• The average car commuter in the Philadelphia area spends about 48 hours a year stuck in traffic.
• In the Pittsburgh area, the average commuter spends about 39 hours a year stuck in traffic.
• Commuters in the Allentown Bethlehem area spend an average of 30 hours a year stuck in traffic.
These hours add up in financial costs, environmental costs, and, potentially physical costs. While traffic is hard to prevent, there are ways from letting a traffic accident ruin your life.
