For Whom Fairfax County Tolls

What would make sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic even worse? Having to pay to sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic!

Fairfax County leaders are thinking of implementing tolls on some of the county’s busiest roads to help pay for more public transit, according to the Washington Examiner.

“We’re running out of road space,” County Supervisor John Cook told the Examiner. “And given the choice between getting in your car or getting on the bus in traffic, people are going to get in their car every time.”

Fairfax County has a number of transportation projects in the works, including high-speed buses, streetcars, and light rail.

If news of new tolls gives you a bout of road rage, rest assured: the Examiner said the toll proposals are still in their early stages. In fact, the locations of the tolls haven’t even been decided.
