Walter McCaffrey’s Committee to Keep New York City Congestion Tax Free has torn a page from StreetFilms’ book and put out its very own propaganda video.
The quiet, elegant two-minute SubFilm shows crowds of people using New York City’s subway system with quotes like, "Here come the sardines," mixed in.
The producers clearly intended this video as an argument against Mayor Bloomberg’s traffic relief and transit improvement proposals but it’s hard not to come away from it thinking: Yes, subways are crowded. Let’s get congestion pricing up and running to pay for new transit capacity.
Clarence, you might want to call Walter and offer your services.
