DC drivers are appalled and shocked at some of the tolls in their DAILY commute from Virgina suburbs into the DC area. Tolls as high as $40 for a one way commute are brazenly and proudly flashed up on bright electronic billboards. DC-area drivers blast I-66 tolling system as fees hit $40 mark In Miami Florida, now one of the most congested metro areas in the USA, where nearly 1 million people per day rely on I-95 for travel into and out of the Miami area, the state, in 2012, took one lane away from normal traffic and turned it into an "Express Lane", where for a toll ranging from $4.00 to $16.00, you can "hopefully" avoid congestion and move at a faster pace in Dade county. Now minus one lane, that resulted in horrific delays for the bulk of traffic passing through the Metro Miami area. But, the financial rewards to Dade county and the State of Florida were significant. So much so that they confiscated yet ANOTHER lane in the already miserably congested I-95 South Florida corridor in 2016. Today, it can take 3 hours or more to drive from downtown Miami to Fort. Lauderdale, a mere 26 miles away. LosAngeles county lookout.....a new traffic jam King is knocking in South Florida. It is rumored that the State and Dade County, given the lack of complaints, and the windfall in excess revenues to spend on electives such as new furniture for the state capital and Miami's City Hall and political pet projects, yet ANOTHER lane is proposed to be confiscated....leaving only 3 lanes for that million commuters to suffer through daily !! Ironically, the roads in these places are usually the worst to drive with pot holes and road surface defects abounding. So, where is all that money going? Drivers upset over toll increases in Miami-Dade County What may be in store is a gradual change from ANY "free" lanes to a completely tolled I-95 corridor. Residents of the area should be outraged. Local and State Governments already legally steal Billions from locals and out-of towners alike. Other politicians in other states are starry eyed seeing the massive revenues skimmed off of citizens and areas in NewYork, California and Georgia are also considering switching high traffic free travel lanes into toll roads. Always promising great improvements to local communities and low tolls, when in reality....the tolls, once in place are never lifted and simply are increased over time to fatten coffiers of government halls at the expense of the population with little if any input or chance for opposing argument from those affected. It may be time to reign in these runaway government greed grabs. But it will take a lot of involvement from citizens.
