It is a pretty significant amount of money. The Turnpike is getting ridiculous. Which is how I go to work unfortunately...

That is $16.50 extra taken out of my weekly paycheck. $40 a week in tolls now. $2280 a year in tolls just to drive to work.

I am only on the turnpike for 20 miles on my way to work and this is what it costs me.

Why would he? I'm sure he WANTS it.

I drove the GSP to north Jersey yesterday to see my mother, and they have these nice new blue signs posted all along the way warning that the increase takes effect at 6:30 a.m. on January 1st.
