Auto system heavily subsidized

from metroriderla - looking at just one small part of the trillion-dollar carbon-auto subsidy:

Together, crashes and congestion cost Los Angeles and Orange County $19.8 billion a year....If all gas taxes in Los Angeles and Orange County went to pay for the cost of accidents and congestion, each and every citizen of the metropolitan area would still have to pay $1,200 a year, or $100 a month, to cover those costs.
