Toll Road Tuesday

1a

Early this past December, Virginia state officials opened up their latest “dynamically priced” toll superhighway, a 10-mile stretch of interstate that runs from Northern Virginia into Washington, D.C. Ten days later, commuter Chris Kane looked up at the signage that continually updates the road’s current rush-hour fare.

The sign read $44.

“That’s insane,” Kane tweeted.

This stressed-out commuter had a point. But a great many of our elected officials today, in Virginia and around the country, don’t buy it. The incredibly pricey tolls that commuter Chris Kane sees as insane have become our conventional public policy wisdom on transportation.

    Get ready to have your wallet fleeced more, costing what could be a tankful of gas just to drive on a road that takes less than a gallon of gas to traverse.

    Welcome to the puggers’ money-focused World, so far we have not received a breathing charge but I am sure some pugger out there is figuring out a way to implement it.

    They are NOT coming for your guns, they ARE coming for your money!

    TVD bridge route took 50 minutes. A flock of small birds, a couple of black birds sitting on top of the disused grain elevator. Two of the big old evergreens are dead; well, one still has a few live branches.
