Lots of Traffic! Hire a car service!

I came across this article the other day

Just another reason to hire a car service

:)

8 BILLION hours in traffic!!

Call me today if you are coming into Tampa Bay Florida and I will be glad to drive you through the traffic and provide complimentary snacks and beverages along the way.

From KFOR News Channel 4

Americans were stuck in traffic for 8 billion hours in 2015

NEW YORK – Pity the Angeleno with a crosstown commute.

Los Angeles has the worst traffic of any U.S. city in terms of average time wasted per commuter, according to a 2015 traffic scorecard from transportation analytics firm INRIX.

Los Angeles snagged the top spot with 81 hours spent in traffic per commuter in 2015.

Residents of Washington, D.C. and San Francisco were a little better off – but not much. They tied for second with 75 wasted hours per year.

It’s not all bad news, however.

INRIX said increased traffic often comes hand-in-hand with economic advances.

“Cities that have experienced the most economic improvement during the past year are at highest risk for consequences related to worsened traffic conditions, including reduced productivity, higher emissions and increased stress levels,” the company said in a news release.

INRIX said commuters spent more than 8 billion extra hours of traffic across the U.S. in 2015.

Here’s the complete ranking of time wasted per commuter:

  • Los Angeles – 81 hours/year
  • Washington, D.C. – 75 hours
  • San Francisco – 75 hours
  • Houston – 74 hours
  • New York – 73 Hours
  • Seattle, Wash. – 66 hours
  • Boston – 64 hours
  • Chicago – 60 hours
  • Atlanta – 59 hours
  • Honolulu – 49 hours

How do those commute times compare to European cities? Only London ranked higher than Los Angeles, with 101 hours of delay per user.

And here is a photo of traffic I was in on 3-15-2016 @ 5:40pm near the Rocky Point area of Tampa FL.

The Privilege Was All Mine

One day last week, I received an order to pickup a named female at a specific address and take her to the airport. When I called her to touch base I could hear in her voice that she was under stress. She instructed me to pick her up on a specific corner & cross street. When ever that takes place it is always a red flag to some degree. Either way, it raises our senses.

I arrived at the corner and seen no one. I looked down the street as I pulled up and seen a female standing 2 blocks down. I went to that location and sure enough it was my customer.

She picked up her bags and we placed them in the trunk.  I could see in her eyes that she was tired and stressed…..sad mostly. As she got into my car the rest unfolded.

She had come to Florida to start anew.  Bottomline, it did not work out and the situation was far from pleasant.

As we drove she began to cry…to sob. I felt bad for her as I could relate to her feelings as I have been there too many times in the past myself.

Sooooo, I exchanged my horror stories with her and let her know that it happens to men too.

:-))!

I assured her she will find the “one” she is looking for as I did…and if I did, she sure will.  She just has to pray for it and be extremely specific in what she desires.

During the rest of our ride to the airport we laughed and laughed…we laughed hard and over and over again.  She laughed at the pleasure of hearing the misery of my past….I laughed just as hard along with her.

I could now see in my rear view mirror that she was laughing so much she was crying from that!  LOLOL

When we got to the airport, she thanked me for the ride…..told me she could not believe how calm she now was, because of how bad she felt while waiting for me to pick her up…….calm, she was now calm…..she then thanked me again and gave me a hug…….yep…..gave me a hug……….

So evidently she had an awesome ride………and so did I.…….

The Privilege Was All Mine!

Jesus once again protecting and directing. Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of an awesome day.

:-))!
