Make do traffic experts

Grant Cattaneo sees "Grass Valley becoming a city of gridlock" in an Other Voices, July 28, 2005
But if you think it is bad now, wait until the next report card comes out. Citizens Concerned About Traffic (CCAT) (http://www.ccatnc.org) estimates that 15 additional grades of "D" or worse will be given to the city.
The Transportation Commission and the City of Grass Valley uses professional traffic engineers who collect data on traffic movements, and then use sophisticated models to calculate intersection conditions.

Who does CCAT use to make their projections, the back of an envelope, a pencil and some wishful thinking? Or, do we have some covert traffic expertize in the community?
