Fees Just For Driving in Manhattan
Manhattan has been recently considering charging all drivers that enter their city a flat fee just to be able to drive around town. Driving conditions have become so bad that the city has been looking for some kind of solution. London currently has a similar program already in place and it has drastically reduced their traffic problems. By charging drivers a fee, this would encourage car pooling and the use of public transportation. I went to Manhattan a couple of summers ago and I was told by one of the tour guides that everyday one million cars enter Manhattan and fight for only half a million parking spots, so I can defiantly understand the need and want for a change. By increasing the price of driving demand should fall. Do you guys think this is fair?
