Commuting "Spokane To Coeur d'Alene"

This morning there seemed to be a lot more traffic on the roadways than there normally early this morning.  It reminded me of how important it is to have your lights on to make it a safer drive, especially with all the fog we have been having lately.  On the Map (www.onthemap.ces.census.gov) in 2011 shows that there are 14,227 employees coming into Kootenai County and 15,576 going outside of Kootenai County for work, with 28,603 traveling outside Spokane County for work. That is a lot of vehicles on the roadways!  Please drive safely and defensively.
