^ It's coming.

It came as news to me that GTA roads are in fact unsubsidized when considered in isolation. However, it makes sense when you realize how many license fee and gas tax payers we have squeezed onto them.

In other words, automobile infrastructure pays for itself as long as it's congested enough.

Look at the end of the pdf linked to the Transport Canada 2005 study and you can see that provinces more lacking in traffic congestion have lower cost recovery rates.

And the jury is still out on indirect costs.
