I live in the most densely populated state in the nation, and I too have noticed a significant drop in the number of cars on the road. I like it.

I actually hit a little traffic this morning. It looked like the ones that were on the road had been out drinking or something. Lane control was lacking.

Never a better time to use the term "surreal" to describe what's going on.

No air traffic, either.
More evident during the evening hours.

Our individualism and preference to transport ourselves around in private vehicles instead of mass transit (rail, bus, etc) may be an advantage.

Ah, h more like it was in the early 70's when the population was 1/2 of what it is now.

I could blast down a Major interstate at night to test out my Buick 401 nailhead top speed and only see maybe a couple cars on the highway..

Plus the Town only had maybe 2 traffic lights at each end of town with the big State road intersections. Later, The center of town had a Cop in a little guard building manually running traffic lights at peak commuting hours.

Good ole days.

It is so obvious to you now that We are WAY overpopulated in this country.

Isn't the whole state on lockdown? Aren't you subject to a ticket just for driving around? Or can you say, but officer, I'm just out for a bottle of milk, when you're 50 miles from home?
