Visiting San Francisco’s windy Lombard Street may come at a price

io6s02ny4q6zDriving down famously twisty Lombard Street in San Francisco may come with a fee soon. On April 16, San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors unanimously OK’d state legislation that requires people who want to drive down the street — known for its 27-degree slant and sharp curves — will have to make a reservation and pay a fee. The bill has language noting that the street’s immense popularity has become an issue for local residents. The plan is to impose a $5 per car fee, with the rate going up to $10 on weekends and holidays. Visitors would need to register for a time and date in advance.

Question: Should tourist have to reserve and pay to visit a destination just because it has become very popular? Is it fair?
