Still got that vanity plate, Dwayne, Esq.?
Dwayne, Esq. is by far the worst person to appear in the City Paper these days.
"If 50% of the people don't mind paying the toll for the convenience of the highway, then that means the local routes will have 50% less traffic. See how that works?"
Then the toll road can't generate enough money to pay back its bondholders. Investors won't buy the bonds if they think the toll road would go bankrupt, like the one in Greenville. Not many people will pay a toll for I-525, with its 6 stoplights and a 35-45 speed limit. It's a desperate idea that won't stand up to serious scrutiny.

Where do I sign up?

I'm not terribly against a toll, as it does both direct the financial impact on those that take advantage of it while maybe making people consider their route planning and (GASP) carpooling. Councilman Wagner is correct that some will avoid the toll at all costs, which will present a question: how much is your time worth? Look at the average person expected to use the route, think of their effective hourly wage, and calculate the toll based on the time savings. Is 2x20 minute savings from your commute daily worth $3? $5? $7? Note: I sincerely hope it won't be that much!
With EZ-pass and whatnot, however, the horrendous bottlenecks won't be any worse than they are now.
"Councilman Wagner says that if you don't want to pay the toll you can use another route. If that's the case then why build it at all if the routes in place work?"
If 50% of the people don't mind paying the toll for the convenience of the highway, then that means the local routes will have 50% less traffic. See how that works? The current routes are horrible and 526 will help alleviate some of that volume. This is how it works in other states with tolls. Some people don't mind the fee and drive the toll roads while others balk the tolls and stick to the local roads. But having two options reduces traffic volumes on both routes.
"JUDGE" "NICK", BOUGHT & PAID FOR.
And the Sargent Jasper "approved" project has nothing to do with this, as anything the city wants to "DO", they "DO". So why ask??????
My boss said one time during a meeting that there is "no" room for discussion,this the way it is & this is the way it's going to be. So,your so-called "PUBLIC LISTENING SESSION" on development is a "JOKE".
Many are understandably confused about all the 526 drama. And the breathless hyperbole ranging from “marshes choked with the corpses of hapless hurricane evacuees” to “ wholesale mass extinction of all known wildlife” isn’t helping either. So perhaps a metaphor is in order:
Let’s think of the state of South Carolina as an immense, border to border trailer park. Just a big giant trailer park. Not too much of a stretch, right? And then all of the cities – Greenville, Spartanburg, Columbia, and Charleston, are the individual trailers in the great big trailer park.
OK, so everything is orderly and peaceful in the community. The little lawns are kept up, most of the cigarette butts end up in empty paint cans where they belong, and everyone minds their own business – and their trailers, too. No loose, floppy screen doors, no broken windows, no clotheslines wrapped around random trees, and all the trash cans are stored around back. Everyone is dutifully minding their trailers except one – Charleston.
Seems that Charleston has a badly leaking roof, and they have ignored it for quite some time. Oh, they cover up the furniture with tarps when it rains, and they stretch the wet rugs out in the sun to dry, but they just can’t seem to take it very seriously. But being an opportunistic bunch, they passed the hat around the trailer park and collected quite a hefty sum. The other trailers were told it was for a hugely important, critically necessary project - so they put their needs on hold to help Charleston out.
And then Charleston took all the money to Costco, where they spent every penny on the biggest, widest, ultra high-def flat screen in the whole store.
The uniforms are part of the gig at El Cid, and they're not US military uniforms. Scholarship ROTC cadets and those in the national guard / reserves wear those on weekends for training.
The weekly parade on Friday wouldn't look nearly as cool if the cadets were all wearing salmon colored shorts and boat shoes like the boys at CofC all do.
