And some aren't traveling at all. "For people that are not traveling, the No. 1 reason is high gas prices," AAA Mid-Atlantic spokesman Troy Green said.

It's part of West Virginia 2001, a joint project developed by Bell Atlantic and the state government to link various agencies in a high speed communications network. And even better, the first application of the system promises an immediate savings of tax dollars. Beginning in April, prisoners in Cabell and Kanawha counties will be able to make court appearances by video link for non-trial events such as pleas, depositions and pre-trial hearings.
