More on Congestion Pricing

The only effective way to reduce traffic congestion is to use pricing. The potential benefits to Americans in time and fuel savings are enormous. State and local governments have an obligation to use this new tool to enable traffic to flow freely.

Americans rely on prices for a stable supply of food, clothes, water, energy, and telecommunications. Why should roads be an exception? Pricing can improve the usefulness of existing roads and attract funds for improvement.

From the New York Sun, an article by Diana Furchtgott-Roth "Traffic Congestion Solutions."

"It might copy GPS-based distance measurements being developed in Oregon..."

So the government tracks every move you make. Wonderful.
