Will this keep the ferries at their current rates? I hope so.

Still think it's crappie that ferries that cater to commuter/locals get tolls while ones that cater to tourists do not. I have fond memories growing up and riding the Minesott Beach/Cherry Branch after church. We'd always bring bread to feed the seagulls. Speaking of Seagulls, I used to work at Camp Seagull and Camp Seafarer when I was in high school and used the ferry to get to Pamlico County.

I agree. Take the Ocracoke-Hatteras ferry. Allow the permanent residents a free-pass, while charging tourist a fee. Ocracoke citizens are required to have a free highway, but allowing tourist to use it free is unfair to the system. And a $5 fee isn't gonna keep anyone away. If it does, they weren't gonna spend any money in Hyde County.
