How to beat rush hour traffic

Traffic some times can get on your nerves, this is something we would not like to deal with during our work day, however for many of us who live 30 minutes to 1 hour from there work locations have to face this dread full reality called “TRAFFIC”. OmniNerd has done a very detailed analysis of the traffic patterns for the city of Houston. They provide us with some ways on how we can reduce time spent on daily commute.
  • Given the above data and analysis, what can be done to improve my commute times? Changing my morning or evening departure time looks promising. The best bet appears to be moving my schedule out a half-hour to 8:30AM and 6:00PM, bringing significant savings (about 7.5 minutes of commute time per day) without getting too far from normal business hours. Spread out over 50 work weeks, that results in a total savings of over 30 hours a year - the equivalent of about a 38% boost to my existing 80 hours of vacation.

These techniques will provide you with ways on how to improve your commute.
