Kansas City Star Calls for Toll Roads
Combest today links to a great editorial in the Kansas City Star advocating that we pay for the proposed truck-only lanes on I-70 with toll roads. Not surprisingly, I agree with every word in it. I’m excited that the Star is supporting such ideas and suggestions as this:
That’s why this plan cries out for a different approach — namely, a toll road. It’s time for Missouri to get over its traditional aversion to tolls.
Tolls are user fees in their purest form. If you don’t use the road, you don’t have to pay.
I highly recommend the editorial, and look forward to the Show-Me Institute’s own work on transportation and tolling being a part of the debate.
