Isn't the bridge from San Diego to Coronado tolled? I'm not sure what other toll roads there are in San Diego.

From Wikipedia:

On June 27, 2002, it became the last toll bridge in Southern California to discontinue tolls, despite objections from some residents that traffic to the island would increase. The islands upon which the toll booths sat, as well as the canopy over the toll plaza area, are still intact, located at the western end of the bridge in the westbound lanes. Though tolls are no longer collected, beginning February 19, 2009 there was talk of resuming westbound toll collection to fund major traffic solutions and a tunnel. However nothing came of the discussions, and more recently there have been discussions of removing the unused toll plaza completely.

A good chunk of CA 125 is tolled

Tolls on bridges are different from "toll-roads", IMO. Many times, a toll on a bridge is just to pay for that particular bridge, not the road that connects. We see this in my native Washington State, with a toll across one way on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge (SR Hwy 16), and across the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge (SR Hwy 520).

For this thread, bridges and tunnel tolls are included, I did state that in the first post. After all, the point is that drivers have to pay directly, they don't really care whether its for a bridge or regular road, do they?

I've always thought it was funny that there was a 405 in Seattle as well, along with the (one and only) 5. Listening to traffic reports up there, you might think you were still down here.
Sometimes I see it on some license plates from Washington, and I have to think for a second. Lol

Point taken, but most toll bridges are collecting tolls for the bridge, not the actual highway.

Slightly deceiving as I-39 becomes tolled right at the Illinois state line

Illinois never met a toll they didn't like. In Chicago, most of the freeway system isn't even called that...it is the "tollway system". And has been that way for five decades or more.

Here are the tollways in Chicagoland:

north to south

I-94 (Wisconsin to just south of Highland Park)
I-294 (I-94 to near Lansing)
I-355 (near Glendale Heights to I-80 in SW suburbs)

west to east

I-90 (Wisconsin to Rosemont Junction
I-88 (Rock Falls in Northern IL, to Hillside in W. suburbs)
