In this Sunday, Dec. 10, 2017 photo released by Santa Barbara County Fire Department firefighters knock down flames as they advance on homes atop Shepherd Mesa Road in Carpinteria, Calif. A flare-up on the western edge of Southern California's largest and most destructive wildfire sent residents fleeing Sunday, as wind-fanned flames churned through canyons and down hillsides toward coastal towns. Crews with help from water-dropping aircraft saved several homes as unpredictable gusts sent the blaze churning deeper into foothill areas northwest of Los Angeles that haven't burned in decades. New evacuations were ordered in Carpinteria, a seaside city in Santa Barbara County that has been under fire threat for days. (Mike Eliason/Santa Barbara County Fire Department via AP)

    One of many efforts to suspend or cap tolling for solo drivers using I-66 inside the beltway at rush hour hit a road block Thursday evening when the northern Virginia Transportation Commission voted 13 to 5 to postpone action on a resolution to do that until January. "I'm not sure that it has the support on that commission because there's a lot of people from the inner suburbs that are quite ok with basically pricing people out of their cars and forcing them into transit rather than making transit the better option," said commission member and Loudoun County Board of Supervisors member Ron Meyer.
