Can someone explain why E is correct

Hi, we are looking for a scenario in which a program has two goals, and the first goal, if achieved, would undermine the second. The first goal in E, to get people to drive less over the bridge would indeed undermine the second goal, to raise funds to build a new bridge. If people were to stop using the old bridge, there would be less money available to build the new bridge
