Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion

I also don't see why we can't spend more on both. Many highways have reached their age where they need to be replaced.

We could not afford to build both, when we built the highways that currently have to be replaced. We built highways instead of mass transit. Now, we cannot afford (or unwilling to spend enough) to replace only the highways.

It's not just a taxation question. Most urban and suburban areas cannot afford to remove from the tax rolls the area required by highways.
