The real culprit in Fairfax's traffic problems
As someone who’s spent the past 12 years living in Arlington and now Fairfax, I could foresee Fairfax’s traffic problems many years ago. While Arlington was committed to building high-density, mixed-use developments near Metro stations, Fairfax was expanding sprawl ever farther. Unbearable traffic is the natural consequence of Fairfax’s land-use decisions, but rather than own up to their mistakes and promise to change their ways, our elected leaders are upset that Arlington won’t bail them out with a highway expansion through their back yards.
Wake up, Fairfax! Take responsibility for your actions, stop blaming others for your problems, and think long and hard about how you can do things differently.
