A Virginia Supreme Court decision has the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) broke and looking for money.
The transportation authority is hoping the video sharing website YouTube will be able to help them lobby Virginia lawmakers.
The NVTA is asking commuters to make videos of their miserable commutes and post them on the commission's YouTube page. It's called "Piece of my Commute."
They're hoping the videos can be used to convey just how bad the congestion really is in northern Virginia. they say it's an inexpensive way to lobby Virginia lawmakers.
That's after the state supreme court stripped the authority's power to collect fees to build roads and transit.
