As roads grow, one thing leads to another

Can you think of a South Florida spot with the same sort of problems described in this piece from Raleigh, N.C.? It seems the inevitable consequence of expanding roads lane by lane as motor traffic grows, with little thought to the pedestrians and cyclists who also need to pass that way.

Oh, the Raleigh story's in the News and Observer.
