Worldwide vehicular traffic has increased by 3.6% in the last year alone. With over a billion motorized “units” occupying our roadways, traffic is a number one topic. Whether we personally contribute to the growing number, or not, we are nonetheless affected by it.

Rist0001 relays the stories behind the scenes of just how traffic does impact everyone’s daily life. My home is nestled on several acres of land in the forest of the Northwestern section of the US. I drive about once a week for groceries and supplies. I work from home, and by design stay off the grid as much as possible.

Even I have some sway in the results of carbon dioxide emissions. The most conservative of us could stand to raise our awareness when it comes to the fuels we consume to participate in the daily grind.

At this blog site, I cover topics about roadways, automobiles, infrastructure, technology and innovation that exceed our present circumstances beyond our best dreamt dreams. I report on which countries are contributing to the increase in traffic and what that means to the rest of the world. I tell stories of traffic mayhem in developing countries as well as the more advanced European capitals.

Traffic and what its message implies is not to be ignored and Rist001 tells you more about it. Traffic comes in a lot of forms, not just roadways. Air traffic,and animal traffic are likely two areas that don’t usually come to mind when thinking about traffic, – but for me they are another aspect to include. I think about traffic from many different angles and that’s what I write about.

I am a bit of a Pollyanna – I admit, and that influences my writing. I tend to bring good news within my blogs. After all, there are brilliant minds working non-stop to solve traffic issues on many different levels. I hold out hope that in my lifetime burning of fossil fuels to putter to work or school – or wherever can be extremely lowered and possibly even eliminated.

So, thank you for coming to my site. Let me hear from you with your traffic stories, thoughts and concerns.
