More on congestion pricing...

From a few previous posts you know that I have a curiosity about congestion pricing as a way to allay traffic jams, while raising money to improve infrastructure and alternative transportation.

In a recent post in the Freakonomics Blog, which I recommend, there's an interesting Q&A on that very topic that you may want to take a look at.
"Most people now recognize that congestion is a serious problem and that something can be done about it. There is also a growing movement nationally to charge drivers more directly for the use of the roads and technology. This will make charging easier and more sophisticated in the future by allowing for time-of-day, day-of-week, and level of congestion pricing." (from What We Didn't Know About Congestion Pricing)
