I concur with Anonymoose. Traffic is horrid and what makes it so much worse is the ROAD QUALITY! It's like we're constantly driving on roads in the poorest developing countries. You'd think our roads are destroyed by volcanoes every 6 months or something. You can't even enjoy having a nice vehicle b/c it's going to bottom out on potholes regularly. The overall design of the city/city planning is pitiful and it's all baked in and they aren't willing to be daring enough to try and turn it around. Part of why traffic is so bad downtown is because they allow often sporadically parked cars to RUIN the 2nd lane in either direction.

Moved here 15 years ago from the US and enjoyed it for a while, but now it's doubled+ in size and prices have skyrocketed and it's not worth the cost or hassle or anymore. Everything cool is being replaced by generic bullshit. Good food and cocktail scene, but that only takes you so far.
