COVID-19 has shown us what is possible for our transportation system. What we now know is we have tens of thousands of people on the roads everyday who do not need to be there, they can work from home. We should be keeping every worker we can off the roads.
If we have to incentivize it, we should do it either by tax cuts or some incentive program. It’s far cheaper than building roads. Our roads are probably 30 years behind the times, they will still need to be fixed and funded eventually, but nothing will make an immediate dramatic difference like this will.
We CAN do this, we ARE doing this, and should expand it into the future.
