Response to Just like the peach lanes on 85
of a solution looking for a problem. I drive into Atlanta about once a week from the NE burbs. One in the car. I could by a peach pass, but then I have to exit the HOT lane when it become a HOV lane. In the event there are 2 of us in the car leaving ATL, I can use the HOV lane, but not the HOT lane.
How did those millions of Federal $'s help make traffic flow better, which is the problem? The answer is that it didn't. I know some civil engineers who have worked with the DOT in the past. There is never a cost-benefit study done on their designs. No look at optimizing bridge spans based on cost, or lane lengths for entrance and exit ramps based on cost and traffic flow. It's strictly conect the dots and check the boxes. That's government as opposed to private business that operates at a profit, or to stay in business. DOT just adds more dollars.
VOTE NO NO NO NO NO on the T-SPLOST.
