BROOKLYN - A transportation group has started a campaign to increase tolls on some East River bridges.

The group Move NY proposes increasing the tolls on East River bridges with high congestion while lowering or eliminating tolls on bridges with less traffic.

Many people told News 12 they believe the measure will frustrate commuters and doesn’t go far enough to fix the congestion problem.

Reportedly, the group Move NY estimates the plan would create about 35,000 jobs if it went into effect.
