THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 1981 _ You Can Expect to Drive ' '- * Over More Toll Highways, Traffic Experts Believe By T** and mor* motorist* can expect to do their driving on toll rowto, a (rowing trend u the nation struggle* to unsnarl increasing traffic problems. ' Many traffic expert* reluctantly v« come around to the Idea that w» can't get new highways any other w»y. we'd better have toll roadi. ." Hlghwaj* with an admission price already are in operation in >iz states—Pennsylvania, Hew York, New Jersey, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine. A seventh, Oklahoma, has a' toll road under construction. Three others—Indiana, Ohio and West Virginia — have passed the neceMory legislation although exact routing has not been completed In all. Five others — California. Georgia, Florida, Maryland, and North Carolina — are looking into the possibility. Motorist Pays Heivlly The motorist already pays heavy taxes for road construction when he buy« gasoline and license plates. Why, he may well ask, should he pay an extra charge for new roads for which he was taxed in the first place? / The answer Un't staple. True, this country has the greatest system of highways, roads and streets (about 3« billion miles in the world). But America also owns -_and uses 7« per cent of the world's ^passenger cars and 51 per cent of the trucks and buses. Before long, according to Industry estimates, there will be 50 million vehicles on the roads. Hoxda Built In 20'» , Most of the U. S. road system was built in the early 29s when there were only 9 or 10 million vehicles registered. After 1930, road construction dropped off sharply and never picked up. • •Last year, the nation spent $4,SOO.,000,000 on roads. But authorities believe than an adequate new road program will cost between J5.7DO,- 000,000 and $7,000,000,000 annually for the next 15 to 20 years. Toll roads were used in this country as far back as the late 18th century but they were abandoned toward the close of the 19th century u long-haul traffic WSLS.' diverted from horses and wagons to the railroads. ; Ton Road Oppoted by AAA . •; In modern times, the toll road Idea has been opposed by the American Automobile Association, the Chamber of Commerce, the Highway Users Conference, the U. S. 'Bureau of Roads and other'organi- IgBtlonj. They've argued that toll •Heeds are undemocratic, that they involve a double tax, that they are costly to maintain.

Traffic deaths during first 11 months of 1951 numbered 33,760 and topped 1950's toll for same period by seven per cent, according to the National Safety Council. Yet several states and cities reported decreases. Best safety records are shown above. been some shift in the expert opinion. The AAA now concedes there are some instances where toll roads are justified. A survey by the Brooking ' Institution concluded that while the toll road is still wrong in principle it must be considered in .the absence of other highway financing methods, .especially since many states already have reached their debt limits. Another study, by the Bureau of Public Administration at the University of California, found that the major toll projects are "financially sound ventures, particularly over a long term. The Pennsylvania turnpike' is the only project which 1 'has been in operation long enough to be classified a proven success. Other roads, however, indicate a present or probable future ability to accomplish self-liquidation." JBLzTHBVlLLB.
