The new toll rates go into effect TOMORROW. Commuters save a little bit. Out-of-state EZ Pass holders save like .20 cents in some places, lol - that was big of them.
BUT ... if you drive commercially, or haul ANY trailer with your car or truck, the tolls have effectively DOUBLED. No joke! So again, the average democrat-voting schmuck from MA will think this is a great idea, and tell the world how the state made the highway more efficient by eliminating toll booths, and saved them a dollar a week in commuting fees ... but guess who will pay for that tractor trailer full of wheat germ, tofu, and tempeh?
YOU ARE ya big dummy!! Remember that the next time you vote democrat like the sheep you are!!
Proof again - there is NO FREE LUNCH when it comes to ANY government entity. They're robbing Peter to pay Paul, plain and simple, as usual.
Might want to detour through upstate NY and VT if you're hauling anything ... You've been warned!
EDIT: Here's the toll calculator if you want to play around. Not sure how long the current & future prices will be listed on there. My bet is they take that down immediately tomorrow.
Oh and forgot, if you don't have an EZ-Pass transponder, they screw you guys too. Takes a pic of your plate and sends a bill in the mail.http://www.massdot.state.ma.us/highway/ ... lator.aspx
