Tell us your story: How does Atlanta traffic affect your life?

The collapse of I-85 in Atlanta has made commuters miserable, clogging the Perimeter and local streets with hundreds of thousands of extra vehicles. When the highway reopens this month, Atlanta will get back to … its “normal” level of commuter misery.

So The Atlanta Journal-Constitution wants to know: How does Atlanta traffic affect your life?

Are you exhausted because you leave for work early and get home late? Are your kids always the last ones picked up at daycare? Have you moved or changed jobs to shorten your commute? Are you willing to put up with hours on the road for better schools or other reasons? Can you even have a life when you spend so much time commuting?

If you’re willing to share your story for an upcoming article, we’d love to hear from you.  Contact reporter David Wickert at
