Back in April, I asked if you thought the City of Chicago should consider congestion pricing to cut down on traffic in the city, similar to a proposal in New York. Well, now Ald. Ed Burke is backing the idea.
Today, Burke floated the idea of charging motorists a fee to drive into the city; the money would go to the CTA.
Think it'll work? London did it four years ago, resulting in a 20 percent decrease in traffic from 2003.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg proposed an $8 congestion fee for driving into Manhattan. What would you be willing to pay to go to the Loop?
