Submission + - Congestion pricing dead in Manhattan (nytimes.com)

mehtars writes: The controversial congestion pricing to get into manhattan is apparently dead in the water, the NYtimes is reporting. Congestion pricing would mean every single car entering manhattan below 60th street would be charged 8 dollars, between 6 am and 6 pm on weekdays. Currently London and Stockholm have had similar plans for its respective city. Congestion pricing would mean that more people would be forced to use public transportation rather than relying on cars to get into lower Manhattan, a plan championed by Mayor Bloomberg. We'll see if this really means the end for congestion pricing or not in a matter of days...

Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
