You snark, but there is a lot of good reasons to support toll roads (tiered pricing). Toll roads actually reduce congestion by getting people who value time more than money to pay up, which frees up the city road for everyone else. Price discrimination may suck for ISPs but it's known to be effective, albeit unpopular, on highways.

That would mess a lot of things up. Contrary to popular belief most civil engineers aren't dumb, they've done fluid modeling and simulations (you know, science) to determine how long each light needs to be red and at what intervals. If you accelerate one part of the system you might disrupt the flow of traffic miles down the road. In my area some traffic lights are disabled past 7pm to improve traffic flow at non peak hours because the lighter traffic past 7 allows some optimizations.
