Mobility is critical to individual and societal prosperity. Individuals need the ability to get around to work, see each other and play, and commerce requires the efficient movement of goods.

One solution that can simultaneously reduce traffic congestion and raise revenue for maintenance and infrastructure needs is congestion pricing, also referred to as congestion charges or congestion taxes.
