The Main Trouble Spots
You just want to get where you’re going, the lights are extra long and stuck on red for what seems like forever, and rush hour is a royal pain for commuters.

Businesses Are Still Open
City council members and business owners are encouraging drivers, residents and those passing through to check out many nearby businesses in Flat Rock.
