    Route ID Indiana Toll Road's biggest difference is the price

    After privatization, Indiana Toll Road's biggest difference is the price

    Sunday, October 19, 2008

    ELKHART, Ind. The welcome signs still say "Indiana." The truck stops sell the same greasy hamburgers. And the road still carries thousands of drivers daily across the far northern part of the state between Ohio and Illinois.

    But motorists on the 157-mile Indiana Toll Road have noticed one big difference since it came into private hands: They are paying higher tolls for the first time since 1985.

    Fees for cash-paying car motorists who drive the whole road nearly doubled recently. Truckers pay even more. Toll rates, which the state partially regulates, are expected to double again within 10 years.

    "The American trucker would like to thank Indiana for raising our tolls," Bruce Mansavage, a 51-year-old trucker from Pine City, Minn., said sarcastically during a recent stop in Indiana.

    Show me a toll road that has not gone up since 1985 in America? has nothing to do with privatization at all.. I am not for the privatization of any toll roads and far as that goes, I am not for anything in America being sold out to foreign countries..
    But I feel if your going to report garbage then I am going to call it garbage... Report on why it has gone up and how we might be able to keep it from going up instead of picking a topic that makes people upset just to sell your article...
