Fairfax has a lot of traffic and getting from place to place, especially during rush hour, can be frustrating. One must plan to live on the Metro route, if commuting into D.C. is necessary, or plan to take highways that can be congested, and which may have HOV restrictions. Careful consideration of the time it might take to get to work is important in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.
