Jason, if the city introduced tolls on primary roads I would be perfectly happy with that.

The government (or the private owner) would get a steady stream of income to ensure it's upkeep and the taxpayer would see a decrease in his/her tax bill.

The city doesn't offer people free phone lines, free internet, free cable TV, so why offer free roads?

To the extent that we target users, rather than the general taxpayer, society tends to build what the true marketplace is demanding, rather than what politicians think the marketplace is demanding.

If you can tell me why transportation is exempt from the laws of the market, I would love to hear it.
