I can usually judge when the traffic will be heavy and bad in Hawaii, but it doesn’t seem to matter here on the time of the day or the day of the week – it is ALWAYS very, very busy where traffic slows to 5 MPH. We drove our rental car from Portland, Oregon to McChord Air Force Base (right outside Tacoma, Washington)...
