How did I know it was Mexico just from the picture? The worst part is that the tires have to be replaced fifteen years early now.

I don't play with Mexican Monopoly money, but 162 pesos sounds awkward.

I don't know how the game is going in Mexico, but in the USA toll roads have turned into a theft of public property for private bonds. First you sell the bonds to pensions and then you make sure the neighboring roads and infrastructure suck so hard people begrudgingly use your damned toll road when it would be so easy to time the lights. Instead they counter time the lights and reduce maintenance to the extent you bypass the region as much as possible to get out of the grips of the tollway authority.

That's intentional. The private entity won't make the investment in a toll road if nobody is going to use it.

I don't know why they bother. I'm not sure too many of those have ended in anything other than the toll authority's bankruptcy.

Sure, it's been a Goodyear for puns. Although some would hold their feet to the Fire, stone and stick cannot break their bones. There has been a real spike in tire puns lately.

FTFA, "The semi managed to travel on the punctured tires for eight kilometers past the toll plaza before it was forced to stop" & the toll was $8.

Drive 8 km on a flat tire, and it is certainly ruined beyond repair.

google says a semi-truck tire costs, on average, about $500. He ruined 22 of them. That's $11,000.00 for an $8 toll.

Forced by the cops or by the tires? Story is ambiguous on that point.

Driving 8 kilometers on flats probably messed up a rim or two as well.

Wonder....*SNIIIIIIIIIFF*...why he kept...*SNOOOOOORT*... driving on flats? Was he hauling something important??

uBlock Origin is the only one I use and did not see a single ad on that page. About the only place I don't use it is Fark since they complain about it.

Who cares about the toll authority.  How did the execs and politicians make out as it headed to insolvency?.

Where I'm from the (now) 100yo bridge that crosses the river to Iowa was a toll bridge to pay for itself. About 80 years later (when I was young) they took the booths out: the bridge had been paid for.
