government should charge car, road, parking fees... but never will

Stuff governments should do:
- charge fees for road use
- charge congestion fees for cars entering cities
- charge fees for suburban "free" parking lots

Stuff governments will actually do:
- continue to raise fees for people living in the city centre, to subsidize absolutely everyone else


Ontario drivers should pay a range of new taxes to help governments fund their road and public transit systems, reduce congestion and cut greenhouse gas emissions, a new report says.

The Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario study, authored by Trent University professor Harry Kitchen, recommends the 400 series highways, the Queen Elizabeth Way, the Don Valley Parkway, the Gardiner Expressway and both the Red Hill Creek and Lincoln Alexander Parkways should have tolls applied. The report says other major arterial highways could also be included.

Yeah. When hell freezes over maybe.
