The myth of faster trips with more pavement

Lawmakers love to widen roads to win your vote and get donations from the road lobby and contractors.  

Lawmakers never prove wider and costly roads reduce trip times, because they just have to say it and the myth makes big news. Adding car lanes often adds to the road death count in Oregon.   Questions were not answered on this project.  Activists did not like the answers from Kotek and ODOT. Why did we not like it?  Because the answers were lies or false or myths. Lies are not answers.   There was never any data to show a $10 billion freeway would solve problems.  We could in fact pay for it with massive bonds.  But is massive debt the answer?  There was no proof the tolls would recover the principal and intrest on this project.   I'm here to educate people and have them call their lawmakers and get real answers.

Here's 2 more videos related the the CRC and the failure of Oregon Democrats in control to create a plan for transporation.  David Bragdon shows what's wrong with Oregon and what is going well for other state departments of transporation.  

Bragdon:   "It(CRC) did not add up..They continually stonewalled and through either incompetence or dishonesty at the highest levels of ODOT just refused to acknowledge"    https://youtu.be/Pk1rW5S-S5A?t=1h5m29s 

On the ODOT failure of a 2015 Transporation Bill - It "was old school, no performance measures"  -- "Big road widening at the edge of town" -- "key projects for key legislators if they vote the right way"
