Quite probably. But I do wonder what the limitations are of what JC could do unilaterally. I don't believe Jersey Avenue is a state road so could we put a toll on it Northbound at Grand during morning rush hour? It's not the most effective idea but there's got to be something we can do.

Here's an anecdote about community effect on tolls. In the seventies the toll on the Southern State Parkway in Valley Stream was $0.10 and they raised it to a quarter. Drivers started flooding the local roads to avoid the toll and it became total shitshow resulting in the toll booths being removed entirely. Never say never.
