The E-ZPass electronic road toll-paying system was initiated in 1993 and has effectively made traffic flow at toll-stations much more efficient, reducing the amount of lag time countless cars sit, waiting to pay their tolls manually and releasing concentrated polluting gases into Earth's atmosphere.

Drivers attach a small device on their cars which sends signals at a certain radio frequency which is picked up by detectors at toll booths.

Drivers can opt to use credit cards to replenish the funds in their E-ZPass accounts and generally the system is thought to be rather convenient.

This simple convenience-engine system surprisingly creates a nice boon for eco-pollution minded citizens and politicians.

The question is, "How can we translate such lifestyle-convenience technologies into pragmatic perspective-changing podiums for eco-conscious sophistication?"

I've long been in favor of toll roads....if we could just eliminate the taxes used for it, use the tolls to both fund for maintenance, and slowly retire the debt incurred to build them.

Using something like that is common sense. I like it.
