Says, in part...
ASHEVILLE — The Asheville area is doing a better job than most of the state’s metropolitan areas in making plans to deal with traffic congestion, partly because it is spending relatively little on public transportation, a report from a conservative think tank says.
Asheville was one of three North Carolina metropolitan areas to receive an A-minus in the Raleigh-based John Locke Foundation’s report released Monday, “Traffic Congestion in North Carolina: Status, Prospects, and Solutions.” That was the highest grade given.
Now, I don't know about you, but this makes no sense to me. Of course, given the source of the report AND the paper reporting it, perhaps that's it.
