    in Southern California at least, there are a variety of highway departments if you consider toll roads a separate system.  There is the I-5 freeway as a public option, and then there is the 73 toll road that costs some extra if you want. You certainly do not need to take the toll roads, and if you don't have the money you can't, but you can.

    I wonder if that is a good metaphor for the mixed system that is being put into place.  If you'd like to spend your money on toll roads (private insurance) you are free to - but if you either can't afford or prefer public roads you can and just pay for the services through your tax dollars...  

    Everyone has access to some freeway but if you want to spend your money on private roads because you think it's better feel free.
