A new Quinnipiac University poll found that 47 percent of New Yorkers call traffic a "very serious" problem and 39 percent call it a "somewhat serious" problem.

Opinion was split on how the city should pay to maintain roads and bridges, as 71 percent of people said adding tolls to the free bridges over the East River is a bad idea, compared to 23 percent who favored the move.

The poll also asked residents if they would accept tolls on the East River bridges in exchange for lower crossing fees on bridges linking other boroughs. Forty-nine percent of people opposed that proposal.
