Not too surprising. I myself and many of the people I know who drive around town now avoid Charleston like the plague, using Meadow (outside school hours), Loma Verde, or San Antonio instead with many using small residential streets if they have to turn right on Alma.

I wonder if anyone has done any research to see if these other streets have got worse during the period and if they are joining the dots on this one.
