Austin Chronicle, The attempted conversion of our public roads into tax-generating vehicles has to be stopped. The idea that the government and private toll road corporations can continually tax us for using roads already paid for is disgusting and wrong. It will degrade the quality of life in Austin, discourage many from relocating to Austin, and ultimately cost all property owners in slowed or reduced valuations for their property. Toll roads are simply a tool for the government and private toll road corporations to take more of our hard-earned money – forever! They will continue to proceed if we "the people" let them. Now’s the time to stand up and object!
