Texas Public Radio Tackles the “Controversial Issue of Toll Roads”

Texas Public Radio tackles “the controversial issue of toll roads,” noting that, “San Antonio is the biggest city in Texas without toll roads or carpool lanes, but that may be about to change.” The piece opens with Terri Hall of Texans for Toll-Free Highways, who says, “To open that Pandora’s Box in San Antonio, when we’ve already seen this kind of failure of this kind of social experiment, if you will. We should not be spending billions of dollars on this [kind] of infrastructure that doesn’t work.” The report covers the waterfront, from the bankruptcy of SH 130 operators to the case of one TxTag customer who “is trying to sort out the $4,000 in fees and fines she owes because bills were sent to an old address.”
