Durkan plans to cut traffic, greenhouse gases by Tolling Downtown Seattle

Jenny Durkan, Seattle’s Mayor is pushing plans to cut down congestion and greenhouse gases in the city by introducing new tolls in the streets of downtown Seattle.

No other American city has managed to succeed in such system however international ones did.

London, Stockholm and Milan have implemented widespread tolling and have generally faced public opposition that faded away after the system was put in place and traffic congestion decreased.

If you were asked, would you agree on tolling the city streets?
