Jason >> If roads were valued, they wouldn't need subsidies to survive.

All the more reason for the city to start charging tolls. If drivers had to pay to drive, mass transit would be a much better value proposition. The government could be the monopoly provider of roads and it could set rates just high enough to keep them in good working order. The current road budget would be taken off the tax bill and that would allow people to spend the extra money on things they value, rather than on the sprawl that you speak so highly of.
