great, so we can enjoy the bullsh*t traffic spilling out into all city streets as well.

Metering lights along Hwy. 4 have added 1 full hour to my commute. Question: How has this improved the already horrid commute we endure every day? I am completely frustrated & thought I was doing ok with a 3 hour a day round trip Antioch/SF commute on BART; now it's 4!

The metering lights on Railroad are a joke! What used to take 2 minutes now takes about 10. Traffic has spilled throughout the city streets in every direction. I don't understand why metering lights are for that entrance. There was never any traffic on the freeway at that entrance anyway. I've only noticed that the metering lights help in two places, Bailey and the San Marco on ramp. Other than that, no difference expect it takes way too long to get on the freeway.

Perfect! That's the way they were intended to work! It makes you want to take a separate route which in turn lessens congestion!
