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.
