      If you don't want to, don't accept that traffic. It's just like a store

My car gets horrible mileage, therefore, I will only pay for the
amount of gas that SHOULD be used according to the factory sticker,
not the rest burned up by my fuel-inefficient driving methods.

I just rented a truck. A construction detour forced me to put more
mileage on the truck than I intended, therefore, I will only pay for
the mileage that I would have accumulated had there been no detours
due to construction.

No, this is not a store stocking Christmas toys, or a Progressive(tm)
insurance commercial. This is bandwidth.
