A Trip To London, 'Lame' Idea, Medallion Monopoly
August 27th, 2007

The Times editorial encouraged the 17 members of the newly formed congestion pricing commission to book flights for the whole team to London and Stockholm, two cities that have come to embrace a system of congestion pricing as good for commuters and good for business.

The New York Post called Councilmember David Weprins idea to create a commission to assess the city’s infrastructure lame.

Weprin’s idea might make sense – if Mayor Mike hadn’t just completed this very task, wrote the Post, referring to his PlaNYC 2030.

A strike by taxi drivers will give the city an opportunity to end the taxi medallion monopoly once and for all, argued The New York Sun.

If the 10,000 taxi drivers don’t want to work next Wednesday and Thursday, plenty of other drivers are available to pick up the slack.
