At least we don't live in France.
Got that right. The tolls there are even more outrageous, but their intention is to force you onto the train. I think the tolls from Paris to Nice add up to about 50 bucks (plus you're paying 4 dollars a gallon for gas.) Once you add up the costs, it makes more sense to take the train unless you really need your car.
That said, we don't have tolls here in Wisconsin, but I have an "I-Pass" for the tolls in Illinois, and it works without a hitch. I've never had it miss a payment, and when I signed up, they asked me for all of the license plates I'd be using it with so that if I had it in another car, and it missed a payment, I wouldn't get charged.
The time saved is worth the negatives that come along with it. Doesn't mean I like tolls though...granted, I've never been through one that's more than a dollar...
