The truth about toll roads:
We do not need Toll Roads!
Texas has always been able to fund roads without tolls. Yet the board has
quietly pushed the plan through.
Here are the facts:
Toll roads will drive up the cost of everything!
- Toll Roads are more costly to build and maintain.
- Forty percent of the income from tolls must be used just to
collect the money.
- Taxpayer property is being seized and given to private
companies, which extract more money from the people.
- Toll Roads are . More accidents occur on toll
roads and electronic passes do not help.
What happens with toll roads in WILL affect you and it will hit you HARD:
There will be significant costs to drive on toll roads that you will have to
travel miles and miles of back roads to avoid. Congestion will increase on
these alternative routes and almost everyone will be running late at one time
or another and will be forced up on to the toll roads.
Tolls will increase the cost of freight and these costs will
be passed on to YOU at the supermarket, clothing store, the hardware store,
etc... You will be paying more for food, clothing, and everything else through
increased freight costs.
Why rob the taxpayer and create hazardous driving conditions when a simple
3 to 4 cent gas tax would fund the roads and also direct 25% of the money to
our schools? Good Question!
Associations and Boards that are appointed by politicians are circumventing
the will of the people! These boards and associations are instigating projects
without allowing the public full knowledge of the details. Instead of informing
the public and allowing a vote on the projects, plans are quietly pushed through
and are nearly complete before the public even finds out about it.
