Or more cars on the road? Or poorer drivers? Whatever it is, it's leading me to boycott the Mass Turnpike.
The Pike is not new to me; I drove it when it was new. And, when I lived in Massachusetts (and was younger), I drove it very often as it was a very effective way to get out of the state. Now, I live in Connecticut and don't travel the pike very often. But every time I do, it is agony. Trips that took an hour and 45 minutes TO Hartford now take 2 hours and 30 minutes FROM Hartford. Most of this delay is due to extended periods of driving less than 30 mph. These delays are mysterious as I never see an accident which might cause the delay. The delays end as mysteriously as they begin. It's weird and extremely frustrating.
