Congestion Pricing

T.A. Responds to Fidler’s Tax’n’Tunnel Pipe Dream

11:04 AM EST on November 28, 2007

We probably shouldn't be lavishing any more attention on Lew Fidler's Tax'n'Tunnel proposal but Transportation Alternatives' Paul Steely White fired off a pretty good, concise response to the Daily News the other day:

Instead of supporting congestion pricing, Councilman LewFidler wants to impose billions of dollars in payroll taxes and digthree new tunnels ("Tunnel visions," Nov. 13). If Fidler truly wants tohelp those who rely on mass transit, he should recognize that theydon't need tax hikes or holes in the ground, but the immediate transitimprovements that congestion pricing would provide.

OK, I'll admit it. I just miss mixing it up with Fidler in the comments section. Lew, where'd ya go?
