Has traffic on the east coast eased because of toll roads? Or is it just another money grabbing scheme from experts? I think the latter. If implemented here on the west coast toll roads will not relieve traffic congestion. The money will go nowhere but into politicians pockets.

Agreed Neil. But here in California, those politicians are known as Democrats. There are no Republicans in positions of power, as you know from the last election.

As a promoter of Brown and Democrats Neil, you should be the first to understand their need for more money. After all they have union pensions and salaries to pay for.

If you wanted frugality in govt, Neil, you supported the wrong party. Its going to be a long 2 years until we can re-visit the election.

Oh Neil, you post everyday, complaining about this or that, yet I have yet to see your name on a ballot. I have yet to see you come up with a solution. I have yet to see you make any kind of contribution at all. Instead, I see you and several others simply complaining. If you're such a patriot, and someone who has all the answers, step up, run for office, get in a position to make decisions and show everyone how it is done. Otherwise, STFU already! As it is, you're well on your way to being Don Karg in a few decades, rambling and ranting with no one taking you serious!

I'm guessing that this will lead to an increase in the quality of doughnuts available to our hard(ly) working CalTrans employees?

Until you grow some nards on your junk and use a real name instead of hiding behind that silly "Do It Do It" it's you that needs to shut the firetruck up.

You are 100% spot on !!!!!!

On the bright side, think of that raise you just received this year, if any... Well, it's a raise you can't keep because it will be going to the state and passed along to the public employees.

I think that's lovely ...

On another note check out the arrogance from "lbusd teacher too". He or she suggests that WE are obligated pay more ...

Just think of the vastly expanded number and increased cost of the fees that are going to result under these dumbocrats. They won't hurt the rich that's for sure. The poor will suffer the most followed by the working class, and then the middle class. The fees don't require voter approval. The dumbocrats we'll just quietly implement them to keep their sprawling socialist public employee unions alive.
