#BayArea traffic congestion grows exponentially…elected officials do nothing

Drivers slogging through Bay Area freeways during the rush-hour commute are spending more time crawling along at speeds of less than 35 miles an hour, with traffic congestion up 80 percent since 2010, a new report released Monday by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) found.

The reality is a harsh one for those who suffer through it, and one that Netflix employee Andreas Schashauser knows all too well. He makes the roughly three-hour round-trip commute from Walnut Creek to Los Gatos and back each day.

“That’s on a good day,” he said, referring to the time-sucking traffic trudge. “It’s definitely gotten worse.”
