With technology comes changes, and those changes come in multiple waves.

Waze, Google maps etc. are routing people through residential neighborhood roads, and this is resulting in more traffic calming implementations. Now Wake County and City of Raleigh are upping taxes to pay for it all.

I'm kind of curious - how often do you drive that during rush hour?

Yes, traffic does back up from the Neuse river to Burlington Mills rd. Expect the trip to take an extra 10 minutes if you encounter this traffic. Just my opinion but I hardly find that brutal.

I see it since I live on Capital but use the side roads because I make sure my trips never include Wake Forest in the evening rush.

I chuckle at those who moved outward to get lower prices and pay for it twice daily.

Even Atlantic Ave, once a great shortcut, is now jammed solid every afternoon.

My husband agrees with this. He makes the trek every day and the stop and go part is almost never more than 10 minutes. I agree it's not brutal.

Also, there are actually two lights for leaving TTC, one by the McDonalds and the other up near Party City and Capital.

What I mean is getting out of the mall itself. It can be very difficult.

As you mention, there are 2 ways back to Capital but only the mall exit across from SECU has a light to get you out of the mall.

I find it hard to believe it's difficult to get in or out of TTC mall. Last time I was there about a month ago half the stores have closed and hardly any foot traffic throughout the mall. But that's a different story and thread.

I'm going to respectfully disagree. I visit that mall several times a month and never have a hard time getting out at any of the exits. I regularly exit over by party city or near the back by Target.

Well that could be said about every retail shopping area in the country. Holiday shopping is not the norm.
