    I was reading Fat Chris and Little Mikies toll increase plan popped up again like a
    turd in the punch bowl for any trucks that cross one of the fort authority's fine bridges or tunnels.
    They must be charging by the inch on the Goethals Bridge cause I swear I think the outter tires hang over the water when crossing it's so narrow.
    How are you Guys faring that go that way often ??

    I'm doing great!

    What? Are you guys planning on charging the same rates after the toll goes up? That would be ridiculous!

    The toll went up three days ago. It's a Hanukkah present, a bit too early for Christmas!

    Remember when they raised the tolls on the Delaware Water Gap bridges on 22,78 and 80? They said it was to "help with security from a terrorist attack". As if a terrorist would want to bomb Easton or Phillipsburg. They'd look at it as if it was already hit. The tolls in the northeast are disgusting anymore.

    I generally take the Tampon Zee bridge if I'm headed up 78.
    I cut my radius down this year anyway unless it paid really good.
    I seen LTLs posted to NYC who's that stupid to take one ?

    If it pays what I think it should. I'm on my way with whatever it is, ltl or truck load with multiple stops.
