This has probably been discussed ad nauseum on this site, but I have yet to find a thread on the topic. I am curious to find out what people think about the concept of commuter taxes and where I can get more info on the concept.
As a city dweller, I can't help but wonder how many of my tax dollars are being spent so that people who choose to use all that my community has to offer (jobs, infrastructure, cultural facilities, etc), but live outside of its borders, can clog roadways that they have not paid a dime for. These are usually the same people who rail against any public money being spent for the center city or public transit, but scream bloody murder when they don't get their road widening project.
Are there any cities in the US who have successfully added a commuter tax, ala London, UK?
