110 Toll Lane Divides Rich and Poor

110 Toll Lane Divides Rich and Poor

The toll lanes planned for the 110 Freeway is not good for the poor and families. Nothing can be more divisive then a special road where people with money can drive and others can watch. Additionally divisive is saying that the funds from the toll road will be used for the separate but not equal public transit which is primarily used by the poor. Toll lanes may bring in revenue to our government, but at what costs? Families that want to drive into Los Angeles for the day can't use the car pool lane on impromptu trips making things tougher on them. If you have been in a car with a small child you know the value of a quick trip and what is lost by creating toll roads. Toll roads also create a spectacle where the poor get to watch the rich have special access, further fermenting discontent in america. Toll roads are divisive, the car pool lanes were able to be accessed by everyone. Now it takes $3/month and maybe $1.40/mile.
