Increasing traffic on the road

I don’t know if it is I or is it the traffic is getting worse and worse every day. I have already written about my traffic nightmares and it is getting worse. Even when I leave around 6.40 in the morning, I see tons of cars driving towards the Lincoln tunnel and I just wonder and the way I am thinking about leaving early, the same kind of logic people think and they leave early to beat the traffic but it seems the traffic does not goes way and there are many different reasons for this. Accidents, construction work, late construction or emergency construction along with some stalled car or bus and during the school days school buses which unnecessary slow your progress towards your work. And when one is done with driving, there is the issue with subways and trains, sometimes they are on time and sometimes they have equipment problems, signal problems or track conditions whatever that means.
And the above is just the normal day. A week or so ago, there was an unlikely snow storm which dumped 6 inches of snow and it seems nobody was prepared for this resulting in a commute where it lasted three hours for me which can usually last an hour and for some more than three hours and it just makes me throw up, how much I alone am wasting sitting in a car to reach my home which is just 16 miles from New York. This increasing disdain and hatred for the commute I endure makes me want to stay at home and work from there instead of stressing myself out for a commute I dread. And on a Friday, I had to drop my sister at the New York Airport and afterwards around 2.30 started going back to my house and it took me more than 2 and half hours just to travel 35 miles. I am just so sick and tired of this ever increasing traffic mess and it seems I don’t see any solution to it as people are not willing to pay more taxes to build more roads and highways or the other solution is to make people work remotely more often.
