Reducing import of foreign oil by reducing traffic congestions.

Currently, I believe most companies’ work starting times are broken down by 30 minutes interval. The 30 minute intervals are not enough breaks to reduce traffic congestions.

 

Denver I-25 is packed every morning; I am sure all big cities have traffic problems. The problems create daily bumper to bumper and stopping on the highways; therefore, the nation is spending lots of gasoline. No wonder gas is so expensive and our country is spending so much money to import oil from the foreign countries.

 

A simple state control of work starting and ending times and cooperation of companies will reduce daily traffic jam; therefore, the nation can cut down foreign oil consumption.

 

I am sure that designations of companies work starting and ending times need to be coordinated in detail from the state and companies efforts.

 

Suggestions:

 

The Government should recommend each state to utilize different starting work times such as 6:00 a.m., 6:10, 6:20, 6:30, etc.

 

Example:

Factories sorted as A with 200 employees starts at 6:00 a.m.

Factories sorted as B with 200 employees starts at 6:10 a.m.

Factories sorted as C with 200 employees starts at 6:20 a.m.

Factories sorted as D with 200 employees starts at 6:30 a.m.

…..

…..

 

Usually in the morning traffic, the busy time is between 7:00 a.m. and 8:30.

Instead of having the companies’ work starting times that are broken down by 30 minutes, the starting time should be broken down by 10 minutes.

 

Companies sorted as A with numbers of employees starts at 7:00 a.m.

Companies sorted as B with numbers of employees starts at 7:10 a.m.

Companies sorted as C with numbers of employees starts at 7:20 a.m.

Companies sorted as D with numbers of employees starts at 7:30 a.m.

…..

………

 

Once start times are coordinated as shown above, end times will also be staggered easing congestion on highways during afternoons and evenings.
