    Wow! Finally someone who just might be able to do something about this!

    I live in Santa Monica and drive to downtown every day. It takes more than an hour to go a few miles. It seems like mr Thomas has some good plans. I hope our city council listens.

    I have been suffering with LA traffic for the past four decades and have given up hope of any relief. What a breath of fresh air to hear someone with a plan that could actually do some good. What can we do to get this rolling? We can write our city council representative, county supervisors, state legislators. Just give us a direction and we will band together like an army to get this done. Jim Thomas: we eagerly await your leadership!

    Great work FDN! I hope something can get accomplished with this traffic thing. I support the ideas that Mr. Tomas put forth. How can I get involved.

    I can’t tell you how stressful it is for me and others my age to have to deal with the mounting and continuing traffic, not only in Los Angeles, but now in Orange County too! I left Los Angeles 10 years ago especially because of the traffic. But I still have business there and have to occasionally fight that horrible traffic. Just thinking about having to go into Los Angeles gets me stressed. I sure hope that the elected officials and those responsible will take a look at your proposals and finally DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! We can’t go on in Traffic Gridlock. Keep up the good work and we’ll be following your progress!

    After living in Los Angeles for many years, the fact that I had to fight its ridiculous traffic (needlessly wasting hundreds of hours each year) was among the primary reasons I moved away. I have no doubt that the many friends and colleagues I left behind will be grateful to Mr. Thomas if he’s able to restore some sanity to a system that has long been a huge handicap to L.A.’s citizens. People with the drive and determination to tackle and correct critical problems are few and far between, and Mr. Thomas’ tenacity in trying to actually provide solutions that have eluded lesser men is not only refreshing and needed, it’s worthy of public acclaim and reverence. Moreover, FDN’s dedication to informing the public about issues that have profound impacts on the daily lives of citizens is greatly appreciated as well! Thanks to you all for showing that significant improvement is on the horizon.

    Kudos to James Thomas for his obvious dedication to solving a significant problem that will benefit most ALL citizens! L.A.’s traffic gridlock has caused a hardship for decades and it’s a relief to learn that there are people in our community who actually care enough to put thought into action, not just talk about things while accomplishing nothing.

    I didn’t think there was any hope for ever really improving Los Angeles’ horrific traffic problems, the “worst in the nation” some have said. It would be a dream come true to actually be able to reach destinations without having to endure the grief we’re all currently unwillingly subjected to. Best wishes to Mr. Thomas, who is clearly personally committed to bringing solutions to resolve this mess; he’s obviously a unique individual who deserves considerable accolades for his determination to improve citizens’ quality of life, a man who’s intent and goals are believable, unlike the drivel of the politicians we have to deal with already. Good luck, Mr. Thomas! I hope you’re able to turn your plans into reality! Millions of us will be grateful that you care enough to try.

    Please stress to the public that the value of fuel savings, plus the time saved and the reduction of stress for all commuters will be of inestimable value. There is nothing I like more than off-hour, or holiday commuting where the roads are clear. You feel blessed. This project will cause a metamorphosis of Los Angeles. We’ll all live so much better.
    Thank You.

    Sounds to me like a well conceived, low cost solution to begin to alleviate one of LA’s most nagging problems.When it is found to be effective, perhaps other cities (Atlanta) will take a lesson from us. Let’s show the country some leadership.

    Traffic in LA is extremely frustrating, especially at
    rush hour However, I am encouraged by Mr. Thomas’
    plan. It would be a relatively simple and inexpensive
    fix, and wouldn’t take ten years to implement. It seems
    that adding lanes to freeways never works. It makes the
    Freeway unusable, and by the time it is finished
    it’s not enough, AGAIN!! Thanks for Mr. Thomas!!

    Thank heaven someone is addressing this ridiculous traffic problem.
    Where is the leadership in this county?

    Having been born/raised in LA, and then living/working on three continents, I can attest to LA having unique traffic problems — what with the sprawl, multiple urban centers and topographical challenges. But it also has opportunities to experiment and then redo its traffic corridors as areas themselves are redeveloped. So many LA areas are decades old and prime for denser housing/workspace but they’ll also need smarter traffic options. Fixing Angelenos Stuck in Traffic has the potential to bring key interest groups to the table — it already has partners ranging from companies to universities and bike groups. Let’s get local governments and the general public more engaged with this partnership!

    Please get behind this plan! Simple, inexpensive ways to alleviate congestion. Mr. Thomas’ plan is well thought out and definitely something the city can implement, not 10-year projects that don’t really solve any of our problems.
