Get ready, drivers. With gas tax revenue stagnant and transportation funds scarce, states are turning to toll roads in 2018 to fill treasuries and manage traffic — despite outrage from motorists and questions about the efficiency of tolls.

The full list of new tolls is hard to track, but at least a half-dozen states from Florida to Colorado are slapping tolls on roads that used to be free or building toll-only lanes this year, and many more are expected to do so next year.

Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was
super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and
say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am
an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to
the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced
blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.

of course like your web-site but you need to test the spelling on several of your posts.
Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it
very bothersome to inform the truth on the other hand I will definitely
come back again.

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet
the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they
plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
Thanks

An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you ought to publish
more on this issue, it may not be a taboo matter but typically people don't speak about such subjects.
To the next! Best wishes!!
