Posted on March 7, 2007 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Just over one-third (37%) of U.S. drivers say that traffic congestion is a serious problem in their community, while one-quarter say traffic congestion is a serious problem that is not being addressed. Just less than two in five (39%) say traffic is a moderate problem, and 21% say it is not a problem at all.

The region of the country where you live definitely affects opinions on this issue. Just one-quarter (26%) of those who live in the Midwest and 32% of those in the South say traffic congestion is a serious problem. In the East, more than one-third (37%) say traffic congestion is a serious problem. In the West, more than half (56%) believe traffic congestion is a serious problem.

When it comes to imposing a congestion tax in U.S. cities, two-thirds (66%) of adults oppose such a tax with half (51%) saying they strongly oppose it. Just 22% said they support it. These are some of the results of a Harris Poll of 2,337 U.S. adults conducted online between Jan. 11-18, 2007, by Harris Interactive.
