AI Knows Why Traffic Is Worse In Boise Than Ever Before
No one on the internet is going to gain traction by telling you that traffic congestion in Boise, Idaho is getting pretty extreme. If you've driven a motor vehicle even once in the past few years in Boise, you know exactly what we're talking about.

Wait a minute. This is the year 2023. We have actual, functioning artificial intelligence to do all the dirty work for us now. So why are we wasting time trying to figure out traffic issues in the City of Trees?
Let's see if ChatGPT (and yes, this is a 100% real answer) can explain why we're in bumper-to-bumper situations more often in Boise:
Hey kiddo! Traffic in Boise, Idaho is getting worse because more and more people are moving there and buying cars, which means there are more cars on the roads. When there are too many cars on the roads, they can't move as quickly, and that's what causes traffic jams and makes us late sometimes.
In case you're wondering, yes we did prompt ChatGPT to write the answer as if they were speaking to a child. That way, there's no confusion!
There you have it. State-of-the-art AI has figured out that traffic is increasing in Boise because there are more cars than before. Awesome.
