CT Columnist Says CDOT Is Trying to “Sell” Tolling to Get State Roads Repaired

GreenwichFreePress.com publishes a piece by transportation columnist Jim Cameron, who writes, “Make no mistake: our CDOT is engaged in a PR blitz to sell motorists on tolls while politicians won’t touch the issue. Nobody running for state office this year has the guts to tell voters that tolls or taxes are necessary and will be implemented as gas tax revenues fail to pay for needed road repairs.” Cameron adds, “There is no ‘free lunch’ and there is no free ride. Maintaining our highways is expensive and those costs should be borne by those who drive on them.”
