Internet tollways?

Andreas Mai is quoted:


 

... one idea that's been floated is a road investment trust. Governments could charge for using highways and invest that money into the technology that's needed to provide connectivity on those roads.


 

Sounds suspiciously like tollways to me. Which dovetails with the trend nationally to construct new highways as tollways rather than freeways, because the anti-tax far right has put the kibosh on any increase in highway taxes since 1991. For some reason, they don't like taxes, but tolls are just what Ayn Rand would love.

But if the government is connecting highways, why not just go ahead and let it WiFi the entire country with a national WiFi system, available everywhere?

Nope, can't have that...

I am hoping this discussion is streamed - mainly because the topic is cropping up in recent articles in Forbes and Fortune. There's not a key driver in automobiles that is creating the interest, other than safety tech features. The 2011 study that idenified the loophole in automotive tech security has been referenced, but I have not seen anything else that has caused such a renewed interest in the subject.  The commentary from this talk should enlighten everyone on what is happening with cars and the IOT world.
