Against Toll Roads

RECEIVED Mon., Dec. 20, 2004

Dear Editor,
   I'm adamantly against turning South Austin roads that have already been paid for into toll roads to line the pockets of Rick Perry and his buddies. If South MoPac and Loop 360 are turned into toll roads, I estimate it will cost me $60 a month in tolls to commute to work. This will be a reduction in my monthly income, and it will slow down traffic on the already extremely crowded roads. I will not re-elect anyone who voted for toll roads. It's a stupid idea that does not solve the real issue of traffic congestion.
