report print email Source: Editorial: TSPLOST gone but transportation woes still demand action
Traffic Congestion
August 14, 2012 | 11:11 PM

Ray, T-SPLOST was defeated because it would not have improved traffic congestion or positioned the area for future prosperity. More than half the tax would have gone to mass transit that only 5% would use. There were uneconomic development projects like the Atlanta Beltline streetcar that require massive subsidies from us and our children. With such a failure, voters should demand new leadership for the Atlanta Regional Commission, which is the transportation planning agency for Metro Atlanta. We have a road shortage. Only government would respond to a demand for roads by building mass transit that few can use. I am glad you feel good about your yes vote, but I don't know why.
