NewsViews: Chicago Traffic Gridlock

March 14, 2011 12:37:33 PM PDT
On this edition of NewsViews, our guests will be Beth Mosher, public relations director of AAA Chicago, and Joseph Schofer, a civil and engineering professor at Northwestern University, and director of Northwestern's infrastructure technology institute.

We'll discuss skyrocketing gasoline prices, and recent surveys showing growing Chicago-area gridlock, including the respected Urban Mobility Report by the Texas Transportation Institute, which lists Chicago as No. 1 in the nation in traffic congestion. That of course means we have the unwelcome distinction of having the nation's worst traffic jams.

We'll also have some tips on how to be a fuel-efficient driver.
