I, like everyone I know, do not like being stuck in traffic. Not having to deal with rush hour is one of the things I like most about walking to work. If it’s sunny out my walk takes 20 minutes. If it’s snowing, still 20 minutes. And if two drivers get in an accident, still just 20 minutes. When my wife and I moved downtown the ability to walk was a factor in our decision, but it wasn’t something I expected to enjoy as much as I do. From time to time though I do have to drive during rush hour, and every time I really feel for all the people who do to it day in and day out.
