Transporation is a well recognized mess and “what to do”?

Businessmen offer solutions to S. Florida’s traffic woes

They’d like to see better-synchronized traffic signals. They’d like to see police make the enforcement of traffic laws a much higher priority. They’d like to see local government limit road construction to late evening and non-rush hours.

It would seem that the business community has few new ideas for “fixing” the transportation problem. Between the lines, I read that business wants “no more taxes” and there would seem to be little support for better public transportation, although the discussion seems to be lead to building more highways. No doubt we will be like LA in the not too distant future. Better to expand public transportation and establish the incentives to use it.
