Some cities are making plans to charge users directly for using
roads. This could either be a toll charged on everyone who drives
on certain roads or in a center city (which might be different at
different times of day) or an extra charge for using faster
lanes. Is this a good solution to the problem of traffic
jams? Please do not simply say Americans would not stand for
it--would they be happier with a dramatically increased gas tax?
Is this approach fairer or less fair than other alternatives?
