Since I live in Savannah, and my family is in Warner Robins (just south of Macon) I am an I-16 veteran.

Yes, it is desolate. Nothing but pine trees and dead deer during hunting season. However...

You can usually run 80+mph. For some reason, the cops on 16 are all on the same schedule. They're either all out there, or they're taking the day off. Now that they're finally repairing a large 40 mile stretch of it going both ways, it's not in nearly the rough shape it used to be in. The exits usually show up ever 20 miles or so.

Sometimes think it is very dangerous, driving a car is becoming more and more people's attention more and more concentration, frequent accidents. I'd rather stay at home and play with remote control car, don't want to drive out.

West Virginia is the worst state I've driven across. I-10 through north Florida is pretty horrible too. No matter how much energy you have when you start the drive, you're guaranteed to be fighting sleep by the end of it. Just absolutely nothing between major cities hours apart, exits that are far apart, and miles and miles of no gas stations.

There a varying response here. Some people are concerned about nothing ness , and some people are concerned about too much traffic. I'd say from my perspective a slammed car in San Francisco bay area is not worth it. Too many people too many vehicles, too many times you get on and off your clutch. There's pot holes everywhere to damage a slammed car.

I don't think there's anywhere worse than Atlanta as far as systemic traffic problems are concerned. A city of 6 million people shouldn't have traffic problems as severe as ATL but they just keep building fucking lanes instead of building a real mass transit system. Literally spending billions of dollars building more and more lanes because the state mandates they spend like 95% of the DOT's budget on road construction instead of some fucking trains.

I used to work as a valet at a hotel in midtown Atlanta. We were on West Peachtree Street all day and night 24/7, 365, and I saw people driving the wrong way up W Ptree so many times that we actually got used to waving people down to keep them from head on collisions down the road. The streets in the city are horribly marked, not marked, or just make random 90 degree turns and dump you out on a one way street where you can see the sign post that USED to say which way to go but now its gone. So good luck, you got a 50/50 shot, watch out for headlights. There are also plenty of roads you can accidentally turn down and end up in a place where you feel naked without a Kevlar vest.

Oh and all of I-85 has to get torn down due to apparently the antics of crackheads.

New Jersey clearly is taking the cake. We have pot holes the size of over grown water melons and just getting worse with no end in sight. Has cost me 2 OEM wheels in the past year and half.

Just to reiterate my point. In the last week or two we've had:
Truckload of foam Braves Thomahawks blocking a 10 lane highway

I-20 decided to randomly elevate a large section like 15feet

Another bridge fire

An overturned 18wheeler leaking toxic chemicals that shut down all ~20 lanes of 75/85 in downtown

A sink hole

Continued massive construction projects along 75.

And more. Here's a recent traffic map for a good portion of the metro area:


What you don't see is the 20+miles of sprawl past 285 (the ring), that's full of people headed towards town. He'll I used to hit traffic about 30 miles out on the NE side of town in the mornings

Really the only good thing all of this has caused is that there's been a 20% increase in Marta ridership already. There's also hints the suburban counties might finally get over their unfounded racial bias' and support an expansion. Still going to be hell for quite awhile.
