“Tom Swiftly and His Incredible Traffic Model” is a sample of transportation planning humour. Puns and Tom Swiftlies count as humour don’t they?
The story tells the tale of a transportation planner and his team as they struggle to convince the city council to accept their proposal.
The original idea actually came to me almost 20 years ago. I tried and abandoned several different approaches before I found the right one. I worked on that approach off and on for six years. Finally, in October this year, I decided to give it one big push and get it done. I feel it is now ready for release into the wild.
Let me know if you think I over did the puns a bit.
