We Can Do Anything

Not surprised at what is possible, but such can do spirit is rarely applied when there are failings at high ridership transit lines. Those remain fucked for a long time (DC Metro, Boston MBTA recent examples).

"Everybody" drives so they identify with the problems of a random road closure 1800 miles away.

Also people have a very exaggerated sense of just how many cars a highway can carry at capacity, and therefore how many people are really directly impacted by such a failure. Carmageddons always aren't.
