    Is Congestion Pricing the Solution to our Traffic Woes?


    Everyone complains about traffic. It takes too long to get where you need to go, and no one can provide a real estimate on the time it takes to get from point A to B in most major cities - and it's getting worse.

    But what if there were a solution that could not only help fix traffic, but also provide much-needed dollars for upgrades to subways, buses, and other parts of our nation's crumbling infrastructure, thus creating more sustainable cities?
