I completely, but respectfully, disagree
Just because you personally would not mind a 45 minute commute does not mean everyone should just accept one without question!
I personally would HATE, DETEST and ABHOR a commute of over 20 minutes in city traffic.
And traffic in Charlotte wouldn't have to be as bad as it is if more people just made a conscious effort to live closer to where they work.
One of my pet peeves about newcomers is when they come from some place where long commutes are a way of life and just bring that mentality with them, not minding that they are adding to the major congestion all around Charlotte when they don't want to at least try to live nearer to where they work
