1. PA 22

sigh. The gov. wants our turnpike to be privatized, as well, but no one is biting!

4. California I can see having the most tolls but damn what the heck is with New Jersey

3. Well, to be fair,
3 of the 4 for MA are in Boston, and either tunnels or bridges. We really only have one main one for the state, and that's the Pike :)

6. Fun Fact: There is only ONE toll road in Illinois named after a person.
That's the "Ronald Reagan" tollway. The others are named after the routes they take so everyone knows where they are and where they're going.

(No charge to ride the Kennedy or the Eisenhower.)

11. I don't know about you GNC, but I never refer to that particular
road by that name. To me it's I-88 or the East-West toll road.

13. Delaware makes up for it with endless speed traps.
Like dropping the speed limit from 50 to 35 and having the cops sitting ten feet past the sign. :spank:

14. You're beginning to resemble a Christian defending the Trinity.
It's ok to be a Delawarean.

:hug:
