My concern: the trap provided for IFR traffic in an arsa. Many of the airports served by an arsa have had such an increase in traffic since dereg that the environment has become a menace to safety. Some airports such as balance, slc, mem, provide airliners with reasonable sep IFR and VFR. Better than arsa provides. Please take any steps you can to help get this situation corrected. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following: this is a general complaint about the traffic vol around busy airports and the use of parallel approachs and multiple runway operation. Reporter seems to want see and avoid eliminated and have all traffic controled by ATC.
