There's No Such Thing As A Free Road
"Most observers agree that we must invest much more in the transportation system, and manage urban growth to support transit- and pedestrian-friendly movement patterns. However, getting people into buses, trains, streetcars and subways, and getting them to walk and cycle depends on convenient alternatives to the car... If we want decent roads and transit, we the users are going to have to pay for them. One potential revenue stream is big enough to do the job: We must charge drivers to use the highway system."
