Story: Have We Reached Peak Road?

Maybe.  As the writer notes, the other two peaks (peak VMT and peak vehicles/capita) have both coincided with the Great Recession as have these data, so it’s too early to say for certain.

I’d like to think Congress would recognize that new roads were unnecessary and just concentrate on maintaining the old infrastructure.

Hahahahahahaha!  Never!
