Jack Malek, Shoreline Windermere realtor and community volunteer, was interviewed by King5 as part of a story on INRIX, software designed to help you calculate commute times from any location - obviously a factor in purchasing a new home.

With traffic impacting so many facets of our lives, a new web feature is helping home buyers narrow their focus based on the amount of time they are willing to spend behind the wheel. 
Search by Drive Time was developed by Kirkland based INRIX and is now embedded in the Windermere website. The web feature allows users to enter their work address and calculate commute times for various times of day. They are based on typical drive times Monday through Friday. 
"Traffic has clearly become one of the single biggest impacts of where you want to live," said Jack Malek, realtor with Windermere Properties.

The story was broadcast during the day Thursday and during the 10pm news. It can also be seen online.

I use INRIX every time I head towards a freeway. It is also useful in other large metropolitan areas, but in the outer areas, not so much. A very valuable tool! How else would I have avoided the hideous freeway traffic when I had to run my daughter to pill hill today?

So why not use INRIX to simulate the traffic that will be generated by the Point Wells redevelopment. It would seem the formulas the City will use instead are archaic. Dynamic modeling software makes a lot more sense.

When Point Wells goes in, there won't be an app that will help you. All routes will be jammed.

More bike lanes and cheaper bus fares for short, in town trips would be helpful.
