Gephyrophobia Maryland markets in everything

For $25, a driver hops behind the wheel of your car to take you across the Bay Bridge.

You will note this is a kind of privatization:

The Maryland Transportation Authority used to drive people across the Bay Bridge who were afraid to drive themselves but it no longer provides that service.

The Bay Bridge, sometimes called the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, is very long — 6.9 km — and it is considered one of the scariest bridges in the world, for many at least.  For me it was fun.

The article is here, and for the pointer I thank Fred Smalkin.

Addendum (also from Fred): Sometimes there is a very strong case for using the markets which have been placed before you.
