A hundred years ago being stopped and forced to pay cash to people who claimed to own the roads was called “using the turnpikes.” Go look at how American roads were built and paid for from Founding until the Interstate System was initiated. Most new roads were turnpikes which you had to pay a toll to use.
Literally turnpikes - the way was obstructed by an actual pike which would be turned away or lifted out of the way to allow access upon payment of fee.
Fascinating historical trivia! Thanks
