I've seen traffic around the mall become a parking lot during Christmas shopping months, to the point where I could walk between cars during green lights.

I suppose what I think of as "Dunwoody" and what others think of as "Dunwoody" are different. By my estimation, the traffic in Dunwoody is not bad at all. Of course, I think that Perimeter Center and Dunwoody are different places.

I have to commute all the way downtown daily from Dunwoody. On a 630A departure or weekends, it's a 22 minute ride down GA400. On a 7:30A departure, it's a 40 minute trip.

Coming back can be more problematic. With flexible work hours, a 3P departure from downtown duplicates that 22 minute trip time. But leaving from 4:45 - 5:45 might cost me anywhere from 40 minutes to an hour.

Perimeter shopping areas (Ashford Dunwoody Rd.) are ALL horrid around holiday shopping.

Single lane routes like Mt. Vernon Rd., Chamblee-Dunwoody or Spalding etc. can be seriously snarled during school and rush hours -- and here, the rush hour is delayed in the afternoon until easily 6P.

But that said, I agree with '10 Feet Tall' that Dunwoody's traffic isn't really much different than other places around Atlanta.

Whenever possible, I love to go to work very early and leave early. If I'm downtown at 5P, I might just work until 6 to come home in half an hour and save the half hour! ;-)

The LAST thing I would do is move to Alpharetta to avoid any traffic!!! Dunwoody gives me multiple options off 285 or 400 while Alpharetta is 400 all the way.

There is always the option of using MARTA from Dunwoody to Downtown. Same amount of time every trip no matter the traffic, around 20 minutes.
