TSA – Which we have been monitoring for some time is easy …. Checkpoints!
Ah Ha …. This from the DOT FAQ
The TVT report is based on traffic data from the Highway Performance Monitoring System and on data submitted to the FHWA by State highway agencies throughout the entire U.S. The State highway agencies collect the data through permanent automatic traffic recorders (ATR) on public roadways.
TVT is the abbreviation for Traffic Volume Trends.
All Roads, Urban and Rural Comparison
Makes some sense after you think about it that Rural traffic has bounced back and is tracking almost back to normal…. BUT Urban areas, with workers still working from home, lagging!
