It's easy to see the advantages but the detractors are seeing more infrastructure problems that could quickly become exacerbated. The study went on for more than 10 years before implementation now the experiment is law. I too would have 2nd thoughts if it were happening here.

The need is so great as is the need to consider consequences.  One of the big problems is to anticipate those who would abuse the opportunity and cause unintended consequences.
