Southern California is known for its freeways, which are often jammed with traffic. Amy Argetsinger and Steven Ginsberg report on our experiment with private toll roads. As I resident of LA who rarely even uses the public freeways, I did not even know these toll roads were privately owned. I also certainly did not know that one could pay $7.75 in tolls to drive home.
On occasion, the opportunity cost of my one-way commute during rush hour on the I-5 was likely much higher. Did I just made a case that we freeway drivers should be subsidizing the private toll roads?!
