Dangerous: Accidents are 4-5 times more likely with tolls than a non-toll road! http://users.nac.net/jmp/tollfree/safety2.html
Wasteful: It costs about 40 cents just to collect 1 dollar of tolls! http://users.nac.net/jmp/tollfree/costs.html
Bloated: Under current toll road plans Austin will have 113 toll road miles per million people! (vs. 17 for Houston and 13 for Dallas) http://austintollparty.com/
Commuter Tax: We are tolling our daily commute highways, not alternate routes as most cities do!
Austin toll roads will be built mostly or in some cases totally
with our tax dollars! Other cities toll roads are generally built
with 80% investor dollars!
Unpopular: 93% of public feedback was against the toll road plan! This input was ignored and we do not get to vote since Krusee, my opponent, sponsored HB 3588 which set up this toll plan and took our vote away! http://austintollparty.com/
