Every time a vehicle stops it wears brakes, tires and roadways, and forward progress stops. Every time a vehicle accelerates, it wears the engine, drivetrain, tires and roadways, burns fuel and creates pollution. Hence, if we want to reduce pollution, transportation time and transportation costs, one-way streets with timed lights are an extremely effective solution.

I am hoping our governor and legislators can take a moment away from their busy schedule of enriching the rich and taxing the poor to contemplate this.
