Block 8 courtyard in VR. You can really zoom in on the building details to get an idea how it'll look and feel from the ground.

^^I feel sorry for all those people creepy-crawling toward the Bay Bridge and/or I-80.

I do not feel sorry for them. More often than not, you see only 1 person per car/truck/suv etc. Too bad, so sad. You wanna travel alone in your own car, then pay the price.

Their speed would not be different on those ramps no matter how many people were in the car. No HOV lanes there. Have a drink/smoke a (you know) and

The idea is if you double up in the car then there are half as many cars on the road, less traffic, faster for everyone. This of course cannot work as long as long as automobiles are purchased by and for individuals.

Better to just make public transit cleaner, safer, more efficient. Both are probably pipe dreams (efficient transit and a high level of car pooling) in the Bay Area but I prefer transit. Nevertheless, the incredible congestion downtown on those ramps as in the photo and the streets leading to them has only gotten worse and likely will continue to until the economy turns down and a lot of those people get fired. As somebody who lives in the city and mostly stays in the city, I do feel sorry for those who don't/can't and have to deal with that mess every day. Preaching to or about them doesn't help them or anything.

If Mission Bay and other areas were over built, you'd see it even worse. I feel bad for them too, especially considering the current state of BART and other transit systems. We should never have stopped putting development money into them on a consistent basis.
