David J. Rizzo, DPM, from the capital of traffic congestion, Los Angeles, an expert to help you combat commuting stress and beat traffic jams.
These helpful tips can be applied to any metropolitan city.
David, Dr. Roadmap, Rizzo is the only one that talks about how to motivate people in the literal sense — getting them from Point A to Point B quicker with less strain on their nerves.
Studies document the fact that a grueling commute can adversely affect employee morale, absenteeism, productivity and ultimately retention.
Education is the key to solving commuting problems that affect any organization.
Dr. Roadmap’s “Commute Management” program incorporates useful topics that offer several benefits.
1. “Learning how to save time during the commute” helps individuals identify windows of opportunity, determine when to take surface streets versus the freeway, and maximize the use of traffic reports to help them arrive on time for work.
2. “Reducing commuting stress” helps people learn the causes of driving stress and how to mitigate them so workers begin the workday in a more prepared state of mind and body. Includes antidotes to road rage.
3. “Discovering secret shortcuts” reveals universal pointers to find alternate routes to get around choke points in any city to help improve punctuality.
4. “Capitalizing on the ridesharing advantage” extols the many merits of carpooling and transit, presented as a win-win option to help employees save time and money, while simultaneously improving compliance with company-sponsored ridesharing programs.
5. “Keeping out of traffic trouble,” teaches how to lower the risk of receiving a ticket to reduce the use of Paid Time Off for court appearances.
“Dr. Roadmap gave a highly interesting and entertaining talk that included an enlightened explanation of the current overall transportation system of this area, along with some fascinating statistics. One member came up to him and said, ‘In all our years, yours was the best program we ever had.’”
“Your presentation on Alternate Routes was extremely informative as well as entertaining.
“The key to Rizzo’s reports is his knowledge that goes off the map”
“Dr. Roadmap…happens to be King of Alternate Routes”
“Does congestion trouble you? If so, Dr. Roadmap has a few prescriptions for you”
“Dr. Roadmap helps listeners steer clear of tie-ups”
Rizzo earned his popular nickname “Dr. Roadmap” by writing a book about traffic shortcuts in Los Angeles.
He educates you about alternate driving routes and shortcuts that Rizzo learned over the years of driving to patients’ homes.
Rizzo took to radio-traffic reporting, which involved live reporting from a helicopter twice a day.
Radio listeners greeted him as “Dr. Roadmap.” Other travel-related positions that he has held include traffic coordinator and ride-sharing consultant.
It’s not the kind of information that you’ll get from AAA [Auto Club],” said Rizzo. “I knew so many good ways to get around traffic…”
Freeway Alternates led to the creation of a game. Rizzo said the game is educational because it helps people learn ways to get around Los Angeles.
