I love this idea 

I love the idea of congestion pricing rush hour commutes, or basically anything that internalizes bad car externalities. It makes so much sense, especially when you read those studies that say something like a 15% (or so) reduction in traffic in certain places would eliminate gridlock.

This is probably one of the few times that I mostly agree with small government conservatives on something, though from my perspective (I'm dead tired and maybe not thinking straight), it seems like it would be easier and cheaper to just raise gas taxes rather than build the infrastructure to collect tolls alll over less congested highways (like those in TX). I know it ain't gonna happen, but it seems like a better idea.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
