Surprise, Surprise

Thruway tolls are about to rise.
"Most Thruway drivers will see their tolls rise by at least 25 percent come mid-May, under a plan given final approval Monday by the New York State Thruway Authority. The higher tolls, which could hit some truckers with rate hikes as much as 130 percent, will help pay for a $2.6 billion construction program along the highway system over the next seven years, including repairing aging bridges and bringing new 'highway speed' E-Z-Pass toll lanes to congested barriers like Williamsville. "
If you got rid of the toll lanes altogether, the congestion would evaporate completely. How's that for an idea, Albany?
