I made a trip to Annapolis on Sunday and just couldn't believe how congested it was. What started out as a great ride with very little traffic all the way to Cambridge, things started changing from that point on.
By the time I got to Rt. 404, it became a parking lot all the way to the Bay Bridge. The highest speed I got up to was 5 mph until I got over the Bridge.
What blows me away is the fact that Ocean City brings the state of Maryland the second highest taxes in the entire state, so why the hell are there such massive traffic issues. I can only imagine what it's like coming east bound on any given Friday or Saturday coming in to Ocean City or even getting through the Bay Bridge.
They can create another Bay Bridge but that will do nothing to create relief as you get into our area. If you are anywhere near my age, I can recall when it was only Old Ocean City Road, (one lane each way) and we dealt with the same traffic back in the 1970's. All these years later and there's really been no relief.
We should make each Governor have to drive into Ocean City from Annapolis on a summer weekend and experience just how frustrating it is. I, (for one) am sick and tired of bailing out Baltimore with our incredible tax revenue.
What would you suggest?
