Dude, thats Riverside...mostly college kids who haven't the common sense gave a summer squash. Add to that the congestion at the IH-35 intersection as well as the Montopolis BS (ACC Riverside campus close to the AMD fab) and you have a major traffic problem. The city of Austin would be better served if they restricted downtown traffic to only bike, mass transit, & delivery so all the college kids could leave their cars at home. City council might actually do that if they get the light rail stuff approved. Austin street planning was never plotted for the growth its experiencing, ask some of the old residents they can tell you the city council was activly resisting growth for a long while.
