Item context: 

Of the 5,000 international articles we've read about toll roads over the past four years, this is one of the worst. It provides a totally unbalanced view that only focuses on costs of toll roads and does not point out any benefits...:
* that drivers gain(a faster trip, more time with family, less wear and tear on their car, less crash risk)
* that non-driver's gain (their taxes don't subsidize roads they don't use)
* that society gains (less pollution, less road expansion/land expropriation, more people considering sustainable modes, less health and emergency service impacts).
