New poll: Tolling freeways, city streets deeply unpopular across the board in Seattle and King County

People don’t like tolls.

An overwhelming number don’t like the idea of tolling downtown Seattle, to try to address traffic congestion. Most don’t want to add more variably-priced freeway lanes, like on Interstate 405. And a big chunk of people think that the main effect of tolls is penalizing drivers who can’t afford to pay.

Those are the results of a new Seattle Times poll that surveyed city and county residents on potential solutions to the region’s transportation woes.
