    Those E Z pass things drive me crazy. They’re always in a different place. I probably look like I’m drunk or confused trying to figure out where and how to pay to get the hell off the highway.

    Don’t pull up to a booth with a young agent, they have a hard time making change for a $.75 toll from a dollar bill.

    I have one, I have receipts (from the website) and it costs half as much.

    EZ Pass is the greatest invention ever, for the frequent traveler.

    There are a lot more pluggers now paying with cash in grocery stores and clothing stores rather than using a credit card. I used to be the only one.

    Pluggers wait in long lines at tolls while the rest of the world flies by. Pluggers have plenty of time on their hands.

    And in those hands is some sort of junk food to help keep that figure.

    Libertarians used to claim the only legitimate functions of government involved killing people – federal government military and local government police. Everything else, fire fighting, schools, roads, water, etc. should be private. They finally realized that stopping at every house to pay a toll on streets was a bit absurd, so finally abandoned that rotten plank in their platform. In Texas, the Republican junta immediately not only adopted it, but enacted it. As a result, we have the crime of turning State 121 from McKinney to DFW airport the Sam Rayburn Tollway. Mr. Sam is turning over in his grave sufficiently that if you put a dynamo in WillowWild cemetery, you could light Fannin County. A dirty slam at one who did so much for people, and his “legacy to the nation” is being subverted by the greedy.

    How does going through and paying in person impede your progress?!?

    The crime is not just turning every road in DFW into a toll, but making them all cashless. Not only are people out of their tolltaker jobs, but since so many ignore the mailed bills, they aren’t even collecting the tolls they bill. It has to be more cost-effective to pay salaries and assure yourself that the tolls are being paid.

    EZ-Pass is cash in that they take a deposit before you can spend a cent.

    @Plods with Beer ( did I mention beer? )

    That was exactly my thought, too… you get an itemized statement if you ask for one and that’s just as good as a receipt. This beside the fact that it saves time of stopping and getting the receipt itself. :-s
