Sometimes new or expanded roads built to ease congestion are suggested to only increase the demand for driving, making for an expensive investment that will only become the same problem with more pavement. Randal O’Toole’s book Gridlock states that this is a myth. He maintains that congestion and pollution are from mispricing roads. That road industry can be well utilized if the users of the roads pay the full price of it in gas taxes and tolls, which in itself can discourage driving more directly than simply suppressing industry and leaving congestion to remain unrelieved.
