« Oil price coming down | Main | Another Vancouver »

I often come across traffic congestion when coming back to Downtown from the airport. I think the biggest reason for the jam is bottlenecks. As you know Greater Vancouver is divided by rivers or creeks and we need to cross a bridge or pass through a tunnel in order to move from here to there. These special points often change into bottlenecks because they have only limited lanes and cannot hold too much traffic. Furthermore, on rainy days, traffic accidents often occur. Traffic accidents at one of the bottlenecks leads to the worst case scenario. The traffic sometimes stops completely for hours. I don't know the best solution for this traffic congestion but there is no doubt that the infrastructure of Vancouver cannot hold the increasing number of cars any more.
