It's what the burden of the cost of living in New Jersey takes on you.

They were supposed to go up a dime. I'm not sure if they actually did though.

Yes, GA 400 is a toll road. And Diane shouldn't get too comfortable either. TennDOT received "toll powers" last year. You can bet new highways in Tennessee will likely have tolls on them. Toll roads are the wave of the future. Who knew New Jersey was so far ahead of the curve?

I wouldn't call it a "toll road"- there's one 50-cent toll about 2 miles from the south end, but in the 16 months I've been here I can count on one hand the number of times I've had to use it. I use 400 fairly frequently, but almost never take the portion that runs through the toll.

I'm not so sure about this proclamation. Kentucky just removed tolls from the last of their 2 pay roads, because their construction bonds were finally paid off. This is an example of how an efficiently run state does it. Of course, don't look for NJ as a model of national efficiency. They've practically written a case study on how not to do it.
