101 Fastrak Toll Lanes From San Bruno To Santa Clara Could Be As High As $3 Per Mile And Will Bring Traffic To A Halt On The Peninsula

The above is my version of title by Elaine Goodman from her report from November 12, 2019 at The Palo Alto Daily Post.

I’m posting this story that I missed back on November 12th because it shows how stupid and greedy the leftists in Sacramento are. Voters may have unknowingly given approval for these toll roads in a previous gas tax bill.

Those like me who live and work here depend on the 101 freeway. If that bogs down, it can bottleneck the entire Peninsula! Shutting down 101 with bumper-to-bumper “parking lot” traffic is coming in 2021 unless The Chinese Scourge pushes it back into 2022 and that could happen. The toll lane on 101 will cut 101 down to two or three lanes for single drivers. Traffic is already heavy on 101 WITHOUT the toll road! And the toll lane on 101 will stretch from 5 AM to 8 PM compared to the current HOV lane for 2 or more drivers and motorcycles that are virtually empty. The HOV lanes are in effect from 5 AM to 9 AM and 3 PM to 7 PM. Compare those hours to the Fastrak lane.

Some commuters are sure to plan on making their way on city and rural roads to the no-toll 280 freeway (that winds thru the hills north to San Francisco) to avoid paying the $3/mile toll. 280 won’t have toll lanes yet but the millions of cars that will undoubtedly be coming from 1010 during the commute hours will clog up 280. Without 280 and 101, traffic on the Peninsula will grind to a halt.

Public transportation is a joke in the S.F. Bay Area. Gangs ride BART and buses aren’t safe, either. The train system is okay but one has to depend on taxi service as well. You’re not allowed to carry in this state unless you’re Diane Feinstein or a cop. This is why so many here drive cars.

The REAL reason for the toll roads in CA is left-wing greed. They want tax money anyway they can get it to pay for their boondoggle schemes like the Bullet Train and their friends, Los Illegals. Toll roads will give them that money. The LAST things this state needs are the Bullet Train and toll lanes!

After all, what sane person wants to be riding on a train going 200 mph that could be disrailed? That’s happened in France. And what sane person wants to pay $90 in tolls roundtrip to go to the dentist?
