The Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association recognizes the need for a long-term transportation funding solution and is ready to work with lawmakers and the Administration towards that mutual goal. Highway tolling should not be a part of that solution.
The WMCA believes tolling will create more problems for motorists, tourists, businesses and consumers, regardless if it is done statewide or within a limited portion of the state.
Tolling will also create numerous unintended consequences, such as traffic diversions to secondary routes, inefficiencies in revenue collection, and even the high possibility of fraud and abuse. Transportation funding is a problem that needs to solved.
