I actually find myself agreeing with U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters.
No, not when she says that bicycle paths aren’t transportation infrastructure.
But in yesterday’s O, she has a letter to the editor pointing out that increasing gas taxes would not help deal with congestion.
She’s right, congestion pricing would be a much better way to go. So are progressives (because it incents desirable policy outcomes) and conservatives (because it’s market-based) going to find middle ground on congestion pricing?
