I know that this not just about SA but it is very cool nonetheless. It takes all the petty differences of our big 4 and tell the rest of the U.S. why Texas is doing A-OK.

enjoy.

Is this that one that hypes every sports team in the state except the Spurs? I hated that video.

People who don't like traffic here in Texas should drive in the Northeast.

I heard Detroit is marketing their region and its lack of traffic (and everything else)

I agree, no comparison in the two. Once you are stuck in traffic up there, you can finally see the "worse" in, "It could be worse" when referring to traffic. I say that to myself when I am delayed 10 minutes or so in traffic. I just remember the good ol' days on 395 and 66 when I lived in VA, and suddenly SA traffic doesn't seem all that bad.

Don't like traffic?

Simple solution: Lose your car.

Wouldn't that be nice. Not realistic in San Antonio, but it would be nice. Or make a bumper sticker that says "Go back where you came!".

Apparently you've never been on a Southeast Michigan highway between 3:00 PM and 8:00 PM...
