They should raise the bridge toll to $10.

Why not make the people who use the bridge pay for it rather than relying on taxpayer subsidies?

There's too much gridlock on our freeways. Maybe tolls could reduce that. I would gladly pay an extra $10 to get to my destination on time rather than sitting in traffic for hours.

If people can't afford the toll, maybe they'll start taking public transportation more often, or carpool.
