See it unfold, Wolff flip flops in a matter of 10 days
Watch this explosive video!After authoring a resolution that passed March 26, 2012, to specifically add NEW non-toll capacity (both main lanes and frontage roads) to 281, County Commissioner Kevin Wolff who continued to push for non-toll expansion just days before this June 25, 2012 vote, flip flops and votes to include HOV transit/toll lanes on 281 — converting two existing lanes that are already 100% paid for into toll lanes. To charge drivers tolls to use lanes that we drive on today toll-free is a MASSIVE DOUBLE TAX. The toll authority has said on the record, it plans to charge these tolls in perpetuity!
Government social engineering to change driver behavior
TxDOT District Engineer Mario Medina specifically testifies that the purpose of the transit toll lanes is to keep buses on schedule and the toll helps that so people don't use it and 'jam it up.' County Judge Nelson Wolff also says: "If someone chooses to not carpool, chooses to ride by themselves, chooses to waste their gas, choose to do all those things, then damn it, they probably ought to pay... if they can't get on a bus or can't carpool, well then, don't get in the toll lane."

This montage, while not completely chronological, shows the actions of these governmental bodies that are not being transparent to the citizens they represent. In fact, those that are not following these events closely are often confused by all the back and forth, and when a politician promises one thing then pursues and votes for another, that betrayal of those that put him there is even greater.
