New Jersey Traffic Getting Even Worse – What A Shock

Anybody who has ever sat behind the wheel of a car in New Jersey could have told you this, but a recent study confirms it. Traffic in the Garden State is bad.

It’s not just that it’s bad, but it’s also that it’s getting worse. According to experts in a report from nj1015.com, the economy has something to do with it. They say that as the economy strengthens, it leads to more cars on the road.

I can’t help but think that all the construction going on in our area has to be a factor as well. Many major projects seem to be on the way all at once, and with the winter weather we had to deal with, I’m sure that didn’t help the progress of those efforts.

The report says the average commuter in New Jersey spends 47 hours in traffic. But, as far as I’m concerned, it’s not just the hours, it’s the stress associated with those hours. We all know how frustrating New Jersey traffic can be. The report also says that New Jersey gridlock has increased by 6%.
