The vast majority of the new road projects are a huge waste of taxpayer funds. I-15 expansion in Utah County, Vinyard Connector, Pioneer Crossing, Mountainview Corridor, and many others are all examples of little foresight and a lot of rutted thinking. These roads will lead to continues sprawl, increased travel times, increased congestion over time, increased air pollution, and less friendly communities. They provide no options for seniors or other disadvantaged people. When will we begin providing transportation options instead of the same old solution that has been proven over and over not to work? Where is the equal investment in transit and other transportation infrastructure?

  1. Very wise; transportation policy is generally very silly and reactionary, and lacks the foresight and preparation it needs.
