But where does that extra money go towards? I normally have no issue with taxes as long as the money isn't wasted on BS.the problem is creative accounting makes sure that will never happen.
But it is so common that something is said to have no fee when paid off, and when it is paid off, they increase the price even more. As they did with the SF Bay Bridge.
But . . . See here.
"Tolls were subsequently raised to finance improvements to the bridge approaches, required to connect with new freeways, and to subsidize public transit in order to reduce the traffic over the bridge. The toll was increased by a quarter dollar to 75 cents in 1978 (equivalent to $2.98 in 2020), where it remained for a decade."
The money has to come from somewhere, and above seems reasonable to me.
