Senator John Moorlach of Orange County has a new idea to help ease the terrible traffic in California. He's proposed SB319, which would require two additional lanes on both sides of I-5 and Highway 99, and no 65 mile-per-hour speed limit.
“So why don’t we provide people with vehicles the opportunity just to drive at 100 miles an hour, get to San Francisco in a shorter period of time than the train would?” Moorlach said.
Moorlach also says this plan is much more realistic than the high-speed rail.
“If you look at what’s happening in Germany, the freeway accidents on the Autobahn are a lot less than what’s happening on our road!” he told CBS13. “You’re burning the fuel efficiently, as opposed to just sitting in slow traffic waiting for one truck to pass another truck for 20 minutes.”
While Moorlach says there are still details that he needs to work out, he says that SB319 would be better for drivers as well as the environment.
