    Unfortunately, it seems all tolls collected by the MDX goes into building new tolls on MDX roadways. It would be nice if half or more of the funds went back into real transit projects that keep people off the roads.

    Yeah the approach is completely backward and emblematic of the “Miami Mentality” of growth that still permeates so much of the city and county.

    In New York, Mayor Bloomberg is trying to push through congestion pricing, similar to London where autos are charged at least $8 dollars during weekdays to enter the CBD. However, instead of taking the millions generated and reinvesting them into futile projects like widening roads and new roads, it is going toward major transit improvements city-wide.
