Today, Reed and Gordon address the relationship between growth, city planning and traffic. Previously, they debated the MTA's plan to convert some carpool lanes into toll lanes, the slow pace of building transit projects in Los Angeles and congestion pricing.

California sprawl slows down 24.3.2008 LA Times: Opinion
A calm in our region's growth offers an opportunity to cope with water, traffic and other issues. The Census Bureau has released its annual estimate of county population changes, and as they have for years, the numbers for July 2006 to July 2007 show wild growth in Sunbelt cities in eastern California, Nevada and Arizona.
