Congestion Pricing DOA?

To be taken with a grain of salt, in that it comes from Newsday, which writes for Long Island commuters. If true, this would be a huge setback for smart planning in NYC. And once again, its the out of city pols who are killing us.

I know there’s a lot of outer borough hatred for the Mayor’s plan too, but it makes a hell of a lot of sense. The plan would include transit upgrades and local parking preferences to protect neighborhoods (like ours) from freeloading car drivers. And for the trades complaining about the cost of getting into the city to do business, balance that against the cost of going to the city for free and losing business because you’re sitting in traffic half the day.
