Letter of the day: An idea from abroad

Published:

I read an interesting article about Germany planning to charge foreign drivers a toll.

The transportation ministry stated it is not fair for millions of visitors to not contribute to maintain the roads. They will issue toll stickers for all cars. Foreigners will be able to get one-year, two-month or 10-day stickers. They can purchase these online or at filling stations.

This is something Florida should look into. With the amount of visitors we get every year, it would be a substantial and well-needed influx of dollars needed to maintain our highways.

For those who fly, the cost could be added at the rental desk.
