Toll business is extortion
I just want to extend a shout-out to Mike Lindblom’s article in Monday’s paper. [“Bridge drivers could get easier ride in state toll court,” page one, July 1.]
Thanks for exposing the extorting toll business in Washington, as the new state resident, Jami Andersh, had shared in the article.
All of our cars are registered, but we put off adding a new car, since we don’t cross the Highway 520 bridge too often and have paid the bills as they come in. We recently got a penalty, when we always pay these bills with an automatic account.
What do this Good to Go transponders really reveal? How do we really know that there is such a need for expenses on this bridge? Who is watching where the money goes and what comes in for all these penalties and tolls?
For whom does the bell “toll”? Not for the people.
