Street Photography location question

Hi ladies and gents, im not sure where this should go as im not really a "beginner" to street photography, however, I do have an issue where i live.

I live in Houston Texas. A city the size of New York City, Boston and San Francisco... put together. Its massive and spread out.. resulting in everyone driving and not a lot of places with very dense populations or crowds. I shoot in downtown every now and again but even there, a lot of people are just driving and very few on the streets even on business days.

The result of this is I often shoot street from my car... at stoplights. Not very personal and not what i would like. I Often use a telephoto lens or shoot through my window with a 35 at people that cross the street.

Just wondering if anyone has had this trouble in the past in some of the more spread out cities in the US and any tips?
