How To Regulate Traffic

TAE is constantly harping on concepts like automated cars and taking the driving out of the hands of the drivers, and how that would massively expedite traffic as well as massively reduce accidents and fatalities. Why not get wasted at the bar and fall into your car...when you car can take you safely home?

It occurred to me today that in the meantime, cities that wanted to reduce congestion at busy intersections should charge people to use those intersections. This would incentivize people taking alternate routes, or better yet, other forms of transportation.
