Congestion Pricing

Julia Eisenshtadt's picture

I read this article today about how New York has adopted congestion pricing in Manhattan. This means that a driver would be charged to enter a street or neighborhood that is very overcrowded. These tolls are expected to start in 2021. Other cities across the globe such as London, Singapore, and Stockholm have also adopted this tactic to deal with congestion.

Changing the Concept of Buses

So after meeting with Michael and Jeff, I realized that I wasn't headed quite in the right direction for my proposal. I decided to change my Persona and Pov and Solutions (take a look if you would like) to a relate to a different person. After talking for nearly 45 minutes, I think we finally came up with a better direction.

The poor condition of roads...

The poor condition of roads in Michigan lead to drivers paying an additional of $648 a year on average in vehicle operating costs. This additional cost is a result of the poor road conditions accelerating the rate of depreciation of cars. According to a study, only about 32 percent of Michigan’s major roads were considered to be in good conditions. It is even possible that the poor road conditions lead to car accidents, decreased household and workplace productivity, lost time and additional wasted fuel.

Move-Away from a No Fault State

Currently Michigan is a no-fault state. This means that whenever you get into an accident it does not matter whose fault it was. That means that not only does the person who caused the accident's insurance goes up but also the person who was affected by the accident does too. However, as of early February lawmakers have been trying to repeal this law and it is still in progress. 

Birds - They're Back

Henry Burke's picture

We have had a brutally cold winter here in Ann Arbor; Bird scooters vanished from the campus for the entire months of December and January. Recently, I have seen the return of these scooters. You can spot them in their typical resting spots around popular school; buildings and populated streets. 

Do you think it is a good idea for Birds to already be back? We will still be dumped on with snow for a month; this creates a very easy way to slip on streets and sidewalks and cause serious potential harm. Should Birds be regulated to certain seasons or months out of the year?

Detroit Public Schools Unifying Bus Plan

Ryan Cullen's picture

In June of 2018, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan introduced a new bus plan for students in the city aimed at reducing the nearly 32,000 students who leave the city each day to attend suburban schools. The plan also unites the bus routes of public, DPSCD schools and charter schools, helping to more effectively service neighborhoods, particularly in Northwest Detroit.
