Default Cayman's traffic congestion

This link is from today's local newspaper. Indirectly, it addresses our ever-worsening congestion, which has turned what used to be 20-minute commutes into 90-minute ones. There are something like 50,000 vehicles for our population of 70,000, and most of those vehicles are on less than a hundred miles of roads during the morning and evening rush-hours. The politicians are planning for the population to increase to 100,000, which of course will makes things a whole lot worse. There's enough money in government's coffers to build all the new roads needed, but will our small-island culture be able to cope with that kind of development? Watch this space!

Why waste money on roads and cycle lanes when there is a port to build, Smith Cove to destroy and an economy to annihilate? Thankfully I walk most days to work or cycle. Trying to get from Governor's Square to South Sound in a car after 4.30pm is soul destroying.

True true. On the day of the mini-earthquake, it took me 15 minutes to drive from my home just south of GT to Governors Square (choosing my time wisely, in mid-morning), and 90 minutes to get back home when everybody was being sent home and clogging up the roads.
