Is this not the story of American transportation today? Exactly its condition, its state?
Thousands of Atlanta-area residents remain stranded in cars on highways around the city after a snow and ice storm crippled the ninth-largest U.S. metropolitan area yesterday and much of the nation’s Southeast region.
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Georgia Governor Nathan Deal said city and state officials are working to clear roads and free motorists.
