Time for tolls on I-93

The Globe's reporting a likely toll increase on the Turnpike to pay Big Dig costs.

Higher, peak-priced tolls on the 'Pike would be welcome (with standard caveats about managing the impact on the complex transportation infrastructure).

But, it's insane that I-93 remains a free ride, especially given that technology exists to charge vehicles without erecting a single tollbooth.

Integrated traffic strategy
No pike toll, increased gas tax
