Several of the surveyed countries, like the US, have a fuel tax that is dedicated, at least in part, to the financing of road construction and maintenance. These include Brazil, Canada, China, Israel.   In the report to Congress, Toll Roads and Free Roads, the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads (BPR) rejected the toll option for financing interstate construction because most .

    County tollroad authorities in Texas, such as the Fort Bend Toll Road Authority, have been very efficient at building new highways that are fully financed by tolls. Despite considerable (and uninformed) opposition to tolling, an unusual coalition of environmentalists and fiscal conservatives has persuaded the Oregon Transportation Commission.   A Strong Towns member recently sent us this infographic created by the UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies, in light of new toll roads in the Los Angeles area: One of the goals of the graphic is to debunk the myth that toll roads disproportionately impact poor people.
