Early morning I-5 freeway backup heading into downtown and toward a bridge to the Eastside of Lake Washington and popular employers like Microsoft. This picture was taken on a very GOOD morning for an average commute! Those are the express lanes in the center going under, and that is Capitol Hill straight ahead with Saint Mark's "the big box on the hill" to the very far left You can click those two links for close views at my More Seattle Stuff Page or here and here.
I lived in heavily congested traffic areas in California most of my life, yet Seattle's commute traffic seems far worse to me. There is no connected rapid transit system yet. We rely heavily on the Seattle Metro bus system (which is timely and great--and just $2.50 to the airport 20 miles away!). We ride our bikes to work (you can also take them on the bus), and keep one small car to get about otherwise.
