“End the Verrazano Bridge loophole that chokes lower Manhattan with excess traffic”

NY Daily News:

“A one-way toll to nowhere: End the Verrazano Bridge loophole that chokes lower Manhattan with excess traffic”

“…we can pick some low-hanging fruit right away in order to reduce traffic and enhance pedestrian safety in Lower Manhattan: End the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge’s one-way toll, which right now only charges drivers going from Brooklyn to Staten Island.

As crazy as it sounds, the status quo gives drivers lucrative incentives to go miles out of their way onto some of Manhattan’s busiest local streets. Truckers can avoid $92 in Verrazano tolls, and other drivers as much as $17, by taking a detour through Manhattan.”
