Remember when I said I wasn’t going to post about road pricing for a while?  Gosh, it seems like it was just yesterday, doesn’t it?  Oh, well.

Otis Krayola, a commenter at Frances Bula’s blog, had an idea for getting people used to the idea of road pricing that’s way better than my crappy “Let’s all talk about road pricing’s merits as a policy idea” plan:

The political problem of imposing road taxes is obvious. Maybe a non-elected body like TransLink could bill every auto owner a staggering sum for past road usage and then waive the invoice with the understanding that drivers will henceforth be charged for what they use.

Brilliant.
