In related news, here is a list of roads I absolutely will not be using anymore: President George Bush Turnpike, State Highway 121, and the Dallas North Tollway.
I already tended to avoid those roads whenever possible, thanks to the fact traffic wasn’t much faster, I always ended up paying more because of some tollbooth problem, and, you know, there is the increasing chance that a wrong-way driver could kill me. But now that there is a 32-percent increase in tolls? And an automatic 6-percent hike every two years, that doesn’t even have to be voted on by the board? Not bloody likely.
It goes into effect September 1, by the way.
