Citizens Say Transportation Is Big Problem

The transportation system is the number one problem in Leon County from a report done by Tallahassee Voices.

The survey group said a roundtable discussion Wednesday confirmed its findings.

Citizens expressed their concerns on lack of public transit, gas prices and road conditions. The most frequently listed problem facing the quality of life in Tallahassee, citizens say, is traffic.

Jada Phelps said, "Tallahassee's two-lane roads, they have so many of them. It does not help the flow of traffic. Traffic is congested a lot of times because we're waiting behind a bus that's stopping and picking up people. There's no middle lane to turn."

Concerns also included the lack of traffic signals, traffic enforcement and the extremely high costs and limited routes flying in and out of Tallahassee.
