Ha. Boy, do I LOATHE ‘going home’. $20+ just to see the other side of the family North of Philly for the 90min. commute up I95?? Uh, no. I’ll take the Sunday-lazy-drive up old Hwy1 and skip the tolls. Better scenery and just about the same amount of time as I don’t have the FassPass (too easy to ‘forgot’ and get a nice bill when you return from the visit.
Jax, FL been putting in HOV and expanding the bypass. As the post suggests, seems to have made traffic WORSE, not better ([never ending] construction, pattern shifts).
MD, no matter the depth of your pockets, govt will demand as much lint as it can get.
When I fly to Arkansas to see family I always rent a car. There is a toll road between where my one cousin lives and my aunt’s house. About a 45 minute drive. I take the old, twisty, curvy, scenic road. Winds up being about 10 minutes longer. shrug
We don’t have any toll roads in our small city yet and the ones down by LA are easily avoided. I hate when we go north to San Francisco area and you have to pay to cross a darn bridge. My brother finally moved so we don’t have to go there anymore.
