Health Benefits of Congestion Pricing

Nice article in the SF Streetsblog (Congestion Pricing: Still Good For Basically Everyone
by Ryan Avent

Especially interesting is information from Traffic Congestion and Infant Health: Evidence from E-ZPass, a paper by Janet Currie and Reed Walker showing impact of EZpass on reducing health problems near a toll plaza.

Photo above is Stockholm, one of the few cities with decision-makers brave enough to try a congestion pricing program - and you know what? The citizens voted to keep it!
