All things considered, there really aren’t so many “ways” around here. Towns are small and roads are two lanes, one in each direction. And those are the main roads. The side roads are those country roads where one car has to move all the way to the edge so the other can pass.
The roads may be small, but that has not reduced the number of cars people have. In fact, each year, everyone accumulates more cars. Where teenagers used to share a family car, now each kid has their own vehicle and it’s not unusual for them all to be driving at the same time.
So we have quite a lot of traffic on our tiny roads. The number of people who live in our towns has not increased and in many towns, has decreased … but there are lots more cars!
