Fattah calls for studying Center City drive-in fee

Mayoral candidate Chaka Fattah yesterday proposed examining a "congestion charge" that would require drivers to pay to bring their cars into traffic-clogged parts of central Philadelphia at peak hours.
Fattah offered few specifics about what his plan would cost or just how it would be implemented. He said he hoped only to "study" the idea.
"We cannot have a city in which everyone expects to be able to drive their car everywhere they want to go," Fattah said.
