From my experience and observation, I agree, mostly.
Let me tell you where I disagree.
Keep in mind this is dependent on the actual circumstance.
I moved to Chicago around age 27, and witnessed traffic jams that could not be defined.
These were jams for no significant reason, other than a Cubs game letting out, or simple Friday night traffic.
There was no way in the world that anyone was going anywhere safe (look at a map) without getting stuck.
Mind you, this wasn't a SHTF event, just everyday occurrences.
I have since moved back to where I am comfortable, the woods, but I always felt the best scenario in that urban environment was to have enough stock on hand to be able to stay put for about 2-3 days.
That way, if the worst were to happen, I'd let the unprepared fools run into the streets, get stuck in traffic, mobbed at stores, etc.
After the initial shock, and the chaos that followed, I'd have a much better chance on bike, or foot.
Let the animals kill each other off.
I always believed I'd have a much better chance a few days after the initial shock, but before the actual desperation set in.
