    How ####ed am I? There was plenty of room no cars but the turnpike will see I paid in and then uturned and paid out at same booth
    I didn't see and double yellow lines it was dark or no uturn sign and supposedly toll booth workers may allow rigs to uturn bht not for convenience
    What are the odds of this catching up to me?

    If i remember rightly, they just charge you full rate the whole length of the road if entering and exiting at same gate (depends on road)

    Forget about it, be grumpy if its an expensive toll, dont do it again, move on

    Just curious if they'll give me csa pts or maybe the company will be notified
    Not necessarily worried about getting fired as much as law coming down on me and a ticket
    Perhaps I am over reacting but I was reading u turns are illegal lol.

    Not illegal (unless posted)
    But inadvisable, MORE inadvisable in a semi with trailer

    Then the cop/camera has to catch you, same as a stop sign/speed limit in the middle of nowhere.
