Song Puts Music to "Highway Robbery" on Dulles Greenway

Statement

Dear Friends,

The outrageous tolls on the Dulles Greenway have motivated one consumer to express her frustration in a creative and new way.

West Virginia singer-songwriter, Angela Petry, wrote "Highway Robbery," a protest song about the Greenway tolls, after she saw how much her husband paid to make a recent trip to D.C. Listen to the song here.

This song puts to music what I have been saying for years. I have long been concerned with the cost of travelling on the road and the refusal of the road's owners to even study a distance-pricing model.

The Leesburg Today reported on stalled attempts to institute distance-pricing on the Greenway. A Leesburg Today editorial also pointed to several efforts to negotiate user-friendly Greenway tolls, which have failed to gain traction.

Please know I will continue to work to resolve this important issue.

Frank Wolf
