BUFFALO, NY - One of the biggest frustrations drivers deal with is getting stopped by one red light after another; some streets in the City of Buffalo have been notorious for the stop and go driving.
Around 3 years ago, 2 On Your Side investigated busy Delaware Avenue, and it took more than 17 minutes to drive the 4.8-mile portion between Chippewa Street and Kenmore Avenue. We were braking or stopped 45% of the time.
Back then, the City pledged to do more to better time out not only Delaware but also many of the other major thoroughfares.
Last week, 2 On Your Side performed the same test and found Delaware to be only about 4% faster than it was before. We again drove the speed limit, during non rush hours, under the exact same conditions. It took us an average of 16 minutes and 24 seconds to drive the same length this time.
