Who the heck does Tim Eyman think he is? The last time I checked, driving was a privilege, not a right and it is a privilege that a lot of people choose not to use.
Eyman said many people enjoy the freedom and mobility that only a car can bring. Well, there are a lot of people who cannot drive due to a physical condition. There are a lot of people who cannot drive due to a mistake they made in their past and there are a lot of people who choose not to drive. Well, I pay my taxes, too, and I think that we need public transportation. I commute back and forth to work and I see a lot of people who drive their nice cars to the park-and-ride lots and hop a commuter to Bellevue. It saves them money on gas. It saves them wear and tear on their cars and it stops pollution! Let me just say that I lost my job thanks to Initiative 695 and I will be darned if I will let my new job be taken away from me by Initiative 745. I will close by saying that if people think the freeways are congested now, vote for I-745 and see what happens. I reserve the right to say, “I told you so!”
