She's already been blessed with good genes, a healthy sexual appetite and presumed athletic prowess to compensate for her apparent lack of intellect, subby. Leave her alone!

I'll tell you why.  Here in Houston (and in places like Dallas, New Jersey, etc.) they built a huge toll road around the city - i.e. another 'loop' that was large than the inner-loop.  The way it was sold was that toll fees would pay for it and once it was 'paid for', the toll booths would then be removed.

That was a long, long time ago.  Guess what's never going to happen...

Here in Dallas, they run stories about people who aren't paying, and the people who owe the most suposedly owe over 100,000 each.

I agree that they should pay their toll fees.  And if they don't pay and get behind, I can even see penalties bringing it up to triple the original.

But when you start claiming "you drove on our roads, so you owe us roughly the cost of a small house", that's nonsense.  It isn't going to convince anyone to pay.  Nobody is going to write you a check for 100,000, just like she isn't going to write them a check for $19,000.

Toll roads are common in Europe for major highways.  Once you get 20 miles outside of an urban area in France or Italy, the tolls start.

In the US, It's typically done because it's in a relatively dense urban area - it's not fair for the long-distance rural drivers to subsidize a very expensive urban highway that may only run a few miles, but cost mega-$$ due to rights of way, elevated roadway, etc.

Yeah, that story isn't unique either. Around here it's just "We're building X, and we're raising the tax on Y to pay for it. Deal with it, you rubes."

Transponder for frequent travelers.
Bill mailed to your house (based on license plate camera) if you don't have a transponder.

Transponder-only tolls roads keep things moving - you don't have to slow to 5 mph to throw quarters into a bucket.

IIRC, the PA turnpike is obligated by state law to turn over a large portion of its toll receipts to fund road construction and maintenance elsewhere in the state.  Which explains both why the tolls on the turnpike are so high and why there are so damn many trucks on I-80.

Cymbal: How do you have unpaid road tolls? Don't they require you to pay before you drive on them?



Not necessarily.  Again, in Houston, you can get set up with something called an 'E-Z tag' that sticks to your windshield on the inside.  You just blow through the toll booths in the 'E-Z tag' lanes at 70 mph and your CC gets charged once you reach a pre-set amount.  For me, it's $40.00 worth of tolls.

Naturally, you can cruise right through those lanes w/o the tag, but a camera takes a picture of your plate (and you) resulting in a citation delivered by the postman.  They enforce those here.

Toll roads (in theory) pay for themselves, whether you are a local or not; if you use it, you pay for it.

Raising gas taxes makes all the locals pay for it, whether or not they use the road, and some drivers that use the road (out-of-staters) won't pay for the road at all.


Aside: How in the hell does $200 turn into $19,000? Even if the $200 had an interest rate of 20% annually, compounded quarterly for the entire 22 years of her life it would still only amount to $14,644.96.

Aside aside: she was raised on a farm near Goomboorian.

Depends on if the charges are legitimate or not.  I got several tickets in the mail for bridge tolls.  Except I have a Fastrak in my car that is supposed to pay that automatically.  I'm not about to pay a fine because their system had a glitch.  Yes, I sent the relevant info in.  I haven't heard back so I'm hoping it's fixed.

The thing is, if a private citizen or company tried to charge fines like that, they'd be laughed out of court.  But somehow it's okay for the government to charge eleventytwelvebajillion percent.

I didn't pay my toll for driving on the new one around Austin, because I simply forgot about it.  It's not something I usually have to pay, so it never crossed my mind after the first envelope, which of course I lost.  Next letter tells me my $20 toll is now $130, and a collections agency (NCO, the bad one) has it.  Of course I paid it, but I can see why many people couldn't/wouldn't.  Seems like maybe there should be a middle ground between no penalties and ZOMG 1200% LATE FEE.

How else are politically connected contractors supposed to get ever richer off of the public with help from their friends in government?

We have a number of public toll roads here in DC. They were built, ostensibly, to help alleviate the mass traffic problems we have around here. They don't alleviate the traffic problems, but they do take in a lot of money from the public for the private firms who built and operate them.

The very idea of toll roads piss me off.  "We're going to tax the crap out of you to build this road, then we're going to charge you to use it, and we're also going to tax the crap out of you to maintain it.   And there is nothing you can do about it."  Imagine if a private company sent you a bill to build their factory, charged you for their goods, and every month sent you a bill to pay for the maintenance crew even though you never bought their product.  We need the roads, I get it.  But double dipping is just wrong.

Same here (Denver) with E-Z tags. I have a sensor on my windshield and my credit card gets charged to $35 when I get down around 10 bucks in my toll account. And if you're an everyday user of toll roads the sensors make sense because they charge a discounted rate (a dime per use, IIRC).
