Default Re: The logic behind the bridge toll. kpaul sez

In kpaulworld, higher gas prices are a dagger in the heart of the economy, but cars and trucks idling at tollbooths burning gas while going nowhere is A-OK.



I don't think he can grasp the concept that the cost of toll collection + the cost of wasted gasoline from idling vehicles + the cost of pollution from said vehicles > toll revenues collected.

"I just put the mic on it, and your grass is on average 0.13326in too long. Pursuant to sec. 13, subpart E of the 'Snooty Acres at Hillcrest Homeowners Bible'; you now have 23hrs, 56min, and 14sec to Mow and Bag, or your Home will be razed, your children sold as Slaves, and your Wife gang-raped and shot.



Plus, you will be fined $25.



Have a Pleasant Day!"

Loss of business due to congestion is more important for the local region but that wouldn't be discussing gas prices.



Anyway I want one of those new 800 BMW's that dude keeps doing wheelies on at the top of the screen. Those look like a bunch of fun, good writeup on them in the (somewhat) recent Bike mag. They like them more than the new VFR.

Stand back! Give him room to breathe! He's getting awfully red, and why is that vein standing out on his temple like that?
