A Bit of Revenge On the Toll Booth

Toll charges suck and no mistake. Let alone the fact that you pay money to access a road and you still have to drive 55 MPH, ridiculous. I was told by a former resident of Chicago that the toll charges were .50, so no big deal. Only thing is, in the course of 6 months, the fees went up to .80 and that of course is on the exit and not including the 1.00 charge to get on the damn thing. I had proposed an idea upon reaching an unmanned booth that had an automatic change counter, that we use nothing but pennies as we had accumulated a shitload on this trip. Here is the result of that little proposed idea:


PISS ON TOLL ROADS AND LOW SPEED LIMITS ON THEM!!! P.S. The state department owes us a bit of a refund.

I am the Complaint Department Manager and I approve this kind of behavior.

Missouri is considering Toll roads to pay for roads and bridges.

I read that they wanted to do that in Missouri; it gets kicked around in Tennessee every so often as well. Federal law currently prohibits states from charging tolls on Interstate highways that weren't originally built as toll roads. Tollways, such as the Kansas Turnpike, that were built before the establishment of the Interstate system were grandfathered in.

The New York State Thurway is the worst. Stupid road was supposed to be free years ago but it's not only not free but the tolls keep going up.
