It worked for a century.

One of my big issues is that drivers are treated like a cash cow to be milked to pay for the mismanaged, inefficient, and corrupt public transport agencies, first with the ridiculous bridge and tunnel tolls, and now with congestion pricing. Let the people who use those systems pay for them (and I say this as someone who both drives and take mass transit.)

I agree. I may not have a car after my next lease. If I do I will downgrade the price to a lesser quality car. Why pay for a powerful engine if you can't use it.

How about all of us drivers take up less space when Parking to free up a few extra spots. We don't need an association to do that.
