Is it just me, or are tollbooths one of the most irritating and insulting things in the world? I’m told the logic is that without them, there would be too much traffic in places. But are they really a deterrent? I mean, are people really not going where they need to go because there is a tollbooth?
No. It just slows them down, causes gridlock, lots of pollution, and fills government coffers.
And as for this EZ-Pass crap…
They put in EZ-Pass as if they are doing us a favor. Gee, thanks assholes - make it slightly easier for me to give you money, and in return you can track my every movement. I don’t know where this has gone in the legal system, but the police have already used EZ-Pass records to track people down. Hello Big Brother.
Now I understand that we need a way to fund roads and other projects, but there must be a better way. The logic is just so awful - we need to fund roads, so lets do it in a way that renders the roads non-functional!
I ALMOST wish some lunatic would go bomb one so the powers that be would have a typical knee-jerk reaction and ban them all.
Anyone else feel this way? Shall we band together to demmand the removal of the durn things?
