I just read this. Merry Christmas from the state of New Jersey. Whatever happened to a 5 or 10 percent increase My EZ pass bills will go up the same as everyones else. Start saving now or plan on taking side roads. Effective Jan. 1st 2012. Get out of dodge while you can. But politicians in Trenton want parents to go to school now for their kids drivers training.

You do realize these tolls are not new, right? They were approved back in 2008 under, um, Jon Corzine. See the last sentence of the 4th paragraph.

man how do you guys live there? i lived in philly for a year and a half, and went to nyc a few times, and yes the tolls are crazy. jersey has very expensive prop tax, and tolls are hard to avoid if you really need to commute somewhere for work. is there many people leaving jersey?

I agree, I remember reading a while back that a series of toll hikes would take place in subsequent years. Usually when they are reported as they happen or get closer to the date, its never mentioned when and who it was initiated by.

Of course the money isn't going into any sort of transportation fund lol
