Only The Rich Get to Work On Time

Virginia is embracing the idea of privatizing roads and adding occupancy based tolls in order to “reduce traffic”. In the past few days peak tolls reached an insane rate of $40.00 on I66 so, now only the rich get to work on time. The poors are forced to make choices.


Cos “markets”.

Maybe we could teach something other than neoclassical economics in schools?


I grew up in the Pacific Northwest where there are no tolls whatsoever. It’s weird going to the east coast and I avoid driving there at all costs. It’s just too much of a pain in the ass.
