Would a congestion charge similar to London's work in Atlanta, or would it fail? Tell me your thoughts...

People in this state have a problem with basic taxes like cigarette and gasoline taxes. Something like this Congestion Tax seems an impossibility here.

Where would you apply the congestion charges? Our commuters go in all sorts of directions rather than heading into a central city.

In addition, folks here are used to driving and parking for free. I think they'd simply avoid the areas with fees.
