Recession: Hardly any traffic going to work
Recession: Hardly any traffic going to work
Tami Dickinson
Age: 44
Occupation: Executive assistant
Hometown: Kennesaw, Ga.

I commute from Kennesaw to Marietta, approximately 10-12 miles. Prior to the economy drop-off, and when school would be in session, my commute to work in the mornings could be anywhere between 45-90 minutes. The commute home was usually between 30-45 minutes. Insane, I know. If driving during non-peak times, the commute is just inside 15 minutes.

Today, commuting in the morning is much lighter than a typical summer morning has been in recent years. My commute in the mornings is usually inside 20 minutes. In the afternoons, about the same time. So...looks like the recession is still alive and kicking in the metro Atlanta area.
