Our "freeways" are crumbling. The rash of wrong-way drivers is increasing. It is time to bring on toll roads. A stop at a toll booth will interfere with wrong-way drivers. Plus a drug-sniffing dog. What a great team this would make.
Just think of the number of well-paid skilled workers that will result from funds dedicated directly to the our Highway Department without legislative interference to maintaining our highways in an excellent consistent manner.
Tolls based on weight and use will be far more equitable than an increase in the gasoline/diesel tax.
I can already hear the howls of outrage and many-faceted excuses from those who gain from today's unmanaged system.
A good place to begin could be the section of I-17 where there are few or no alternatives and there is already talk of spending many dollars on building a new lane.
