All toll roads should be immediately banned

..if they use or had used even a dime in federal money to build or maintain them.

Here's an interesting article about the history of I-4 by the way:

The Baggers sold us out.  They are going to charge in excess of $1 a mile to use the toll lanes.  Probably some billionaire will profit from all the people taking the toll lane to their near minimum wage jobs because they don't want to be late and thus fired.  Talk about sick.

No one is forcing you to take the toll road.  Use the backroads, buck.

Re: All toll roads should be immediately banned

Liberals are very interested in toll roads, because they want to make transportation expensive. I don't know if you remember Zathrus, but he used to say that low gas prices were a failed policy.

When SF wanted to replace Doyle Drive (which was a total death trap!), the feds refused to finance unless there was a special toll for use of it, which I think was going to be initially set at $1 per car. The city was trying to figure out how it was going to put up toll booths when the great recession happened. Then, the Obama stimulus plan, in addition to a public private partnership, eventually funded it.

Incidentally, the construction of the new Doyle Drive opened ahead of schedule because of incentives given to the private firm building it.
