After USD billions of subsidy, the private auto system is still congested and unsafe. Engineers are warning that road and bridge repairs are urgently needed.
Oops, the government is broke. The taxpayer can no longer afford the private auto subsidy: roads and highways, energy wars, climate disruption, congestion, sprawl, collisions, parking, drainage, etc.
When you are out of money, it is a good idea to stop wasting it.
