Maryland and neighboring states in the Mid-Atlantic region are in the grips of a transportation crisis. Roads and highways that used to be clogged by heavy “rush hour” traffic are now impassable in three- to four-hour cycles, in never-ending congestion.
Most commuters are not being encouraged or incentivized to bike, walk and take public transportation to work, and many have fewer options to do so.
Adding to the crisis in our area, vehicles emissions in Maryland are now the No. 1 contributor to climate change and air pollution, causing a higher rate of respiratory illness in our cities.
