Roads for Nobody

China has 46K miles of highways; we have barely 47K. China plans to build out to 112.5K miles by ’30 yet there are just one-third as many cars in China as here, and worse, Chinese highways have high tolls, to pay for the roads, which strongly discourage use. Unless auto ownership booms and drivers can soon afford the high tolls, China is wasting its money. It should build surface roads, not expressways that serve no one.
