Eric, as a second homeowner of a rental property, you are free to remove yourself from this system by selling this rental unit instead of complaining about how money is being stolen from you. Your complaints ring hollow.

Profit and control would be why a private company would want to take away the right to assess public easements. my compairison to gun right might not be the best, but taking a public asset, like roadway easement access, and giving it away to a private company because we the public are too cheap to pay for the improvments the roadway needs it not a good idea IMO. I do not hold faith that any for profit company can take into consideration everyone's right to access, when confronted with the motivation of profit vs public good. this goes all the way back to budgeting in government, if we were not spending billions on our useless war efforts, the tovernment would have the funds to improve these public works to serve the taxpayers, instead we toss billions into the cesspool of the middle east, and make poor americans sit in traffic while the rich rush by in their $30/lane private road.

And when a private company takes the public right to free travel away you would have no problem? Pay to move freely works great for the rich, and traps the poor into places where the rich don't want to have them. Why don't we let a private company take away all your guns? Then you can pay to exercise your 2nd amendment rights, and the crazies won't have access, and the government won't control all the guns.

I guess you only eat meat, and not fruit or vegetables? No Napa wines? Let's just not care about anything cause soon we will all be dead. Nature takes its course, and that's that. No reason to preserve the glory of the planet GOD left in our care? Tell me what will you answer to StPeter when he asks why you trashed GOD's planet, and left it in a poor position to support the future of GOD's creatures.(man included)

How will traffic feel about letting the rich fast lane merge with the poor slow lanes? Oh please rich lane driver let me wait and open a gap for you to get into the lane I've been sitting in bumper to bumper for hours.

Help me understand why if this is a needed and doable fix, why dose anyone have to pay CDot for its use? The road is already there, we already paid for it, they are just allowing us to drive on the shoulder for a fee "sometimes". I disagree with the new trend of private roads on public easements.

This lane should be free for all who live west of the tunnel. We do not make their traffic problem, and should not have to pay.
