The Fast Lane | Full Measure

 As more Americans get back to work after the Covid-19 shutdowns, traffic gridlock threatens to make a return. It’s been a longstanding problem in nearly every major city. When we’re fully up and running, highway congestion costs more than a hundred billion dollars a year in terms of lost productivity, wasted gas and added pollution. So how much would you be willing to pay to sail past a line of rush hour traffic in your own car? Ten dollars? Twenty? How about forty dollars? Today we investigate the high cost of the fast lane.

--------- Full Measure is a weekly Sunday news program focusing on investigative, original and accountability reporting. The host is Sharyl Attkisson, five-time Emmy Award winner and recipient of the Edward R. Murrow award for investigative reporting. She is backed by a team of award winning journalists. Each week, we have a cover story that explores untouchable topics in a fearless way including: immigration, terrorism, government waste, national security and whistleblower reports on government and corporate abuse and misdeeds. Full Measure is broadcast to 43 million households in 79 markets on 162 Sinclair Broadcast Group stations, including ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW, MyTV, Univision and Telemundo affiliates. It also streams live Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. ET.
