    Expanding the congestion difference might be something, but I’m much more in favor of a statewide road charge than a toll increase. There are traffic problems far beyond the bay toll bridges’ reach – San Jose especially. Democrats have a supermajority, they should be able to pass a higher gas tax or road charge at this point.

    (Side note the CA Road Charge pilot can’t finish soon enough)
