DC Area Drivers Don’t Want Downtown Toll

Poll: DC-Area Residents Opposed To Toll

(Washington, DC) — A new poll shows DC-area residents are against paying a toll to drive into downtown Washington. A recent Washington Post-Schar School poll found 63-percent of residents are against charging drivers a toll to enter the District during high-traffic times, in an effort to bring some relief to congested roads. Just 34-percent said they support the idea. City leaders are considering the option to address downtown’s traffic problem. New York last month became the first city to approve charging drivers a premium to drive into congested areas.
