City congestion takes toll on common sense

admin 21 June 2007 No Comment

There’s something appealing about taxing cars and trucks that traverse the Loop, as Ald. Edward Burke (14th) suggests: It would tap suburban and other drivers who supposedly don’t pay for those city streets.

It would satisfy Chicagoans who believe suburbanites are moochers, enjoying the city’s benefits and amenities without paying for them. Burke himself suggested as much when he pointed out that suburbanites don’t pay for the city’s vehicle sticker.
