HB 2123 would serve the public interest by restoring traffic relief as part of state transportation policy
Bob Pishue, Director, Coles Center for Transportation, March, 2014

Yet traffic relief is not a policy priority for transportation officials in Washington state. Until 2007, the state set specific performance benchmarks for improving vehicle flows on urban highways to reduce travel times and to improve the mobility of citizens.
