Welcome to the result of 50 years of auto-dependent suburban sprawl.
How do you like it?

It's fine by me, does everyone have to live in a high rise?
The population has been growing, this is only natural.
Luckily for me, I live 25 minutes from work and have lots of quiet country
roads to ride on once I get home. Much more convenient than riding my bike to
work every day. I don'y live in a suburb eithr, I live out in the country. No
one says you have to live in a subdivision, I don't see the big political high
horse on this issue.
