More from the Big Congestion Pricing Campaign


Here’s the latest pro-congestion pricing television ad that’ll start airing in the city and Albany starting tomorrow, featuring a mother who lives “under the 59th Street bridge.”

“It’s a nice area, but I think there is too much congestion.”

It has the flashing words, quick cuts, dramatic music and personal testimonials that Bloomberg-ian television ads have employed for some time.

Also note the urgency in this line at the end of the commercial, which sounds as if it was lifted straight from the mayor’s talking points:

“If they don’t do something now, then I don’t think that they care about the people, like me and my children.”
