Driving Down Nearly 5% In June

The Washington State Department of Transportation says traffic was nearly 5 percent less last month than it was in 2007, 2006 and in 2005.

Here's a link to their blog and some very interesting facts and figures.

And if you're interested in even more traffic info, the WSDOT's 'Annual Traffic Report' summarizes traffic data maintained for the State Highway System. The report includes Annual Average Daily Traffic figures and truck percentages, a table of Average Weekday Traffic, and Annual Vehicle Miles of Travel information for the State Highway System, among other information.
