Italian Highways

We, our parents and our grandparents paid for the highways. The building costs were written off years ago.
In England and in Germany, highway travel is free. In those Countries, the citizens use the highways, quite legally, without paying twice.
They originally financed them and now the highways belong to them.
In Italy, the highways were given away to concession holders such as Benetton, who now earns billions of Euros, with no risks and no invested capital. The millions of Euros in revenues are then invested in all sorts of businesses and are used to finance the political parties.
