The sorta, kinda congestion pricing plan on LA's freeways is now a few months old and in that time we've noticed no benefits, but then again it wasn't designed like normal congestion pricing. So what could real congestion pricing (everyone is charged, not just people using the HOV lanes) do? If you're in Stockholm, you'd see a precipitous drop in drivers on the road during rush hour and you'd happily tell your friends about it in Swedish. H/t to ArchDaily which links to the above TEDx talk to explain the magical world of congestion pricing.
