quote: It will cost L-A residents 25% more to go to Portland and 33% more to go to Augusta in February. I'd say that is a pretty hefty increase.
"How much more can we take up here in L-A, Mistah Speakuh?" Bob Stone
Boo Hoo. Life is so unfair to all the smucks like Bob who live in the LA Area. You can at least hop on the interstate and travel between the towns without paying a toll.Here in Westbrook, we pay a toll just to sneeze near the Turnpike. In the case of two tolls we get to pay twice for the same service. Transpass is actually a great deal. I understand that people are dissappointed with the increases, but lets attack this on the merits.Why does it take four to eight MTA dump trucks with full work crews to protect one paint truck on the highway? Why do we fix roads that are in great shape while we let the DOT struggle to fix road in rural areas? Hell have any of you traveled through Guilford Lately. Drive there enough and you will have to have a kidney transplant.Tony
