Congestion Pricing – fees to set in traffic? A bright idea to fight emissions

Something that would help out with emissions? Less people driving. Easier said than done though. People have places to be, things to do. To help them choose other transportation options, one suggestion is congestion pricing, a fee for driving in congested areas.
