You sound like a hypnotist Dave. I can see you waving a shiny object back and forth in front of my eyes repeating that phrase over and over until I pay the toll. The company that operates that toll road should hire you.

Toll roads in Florida, expensive, easy to pay etc. Going to FL this winter and haven't driven on them before.

Thanks

We're heading out next weekend to NH so we'll be doing a long stretch on the I90 toll road. It'll cost about $50 each way and as it's not A ETR, you pay in full at the exit. No chance of a feebie there!

Try driving the 407 in Ontario. Has to be the most expensive private toll road in the world and the lucky taxpayers of Ontario gave it to the private owners courtesy of our Provincial government.

I avoid toll roads at all costs! (pun intended). It would have cost me $30 round trip in tolls this weekend if i didn't take back roads. Took an extra 15-20 min. But it was worth it. And i got better gas mileage too.

That highway is in Toronto. That is not indicative of Canada. I would stay away from there too , for several reasons, other than tolls.

You could take the 401 and avoid the 407 but then you would have to deal with the heavy traffic, large trucks driven by new "Canadians" and a lot more stress. The only highway worst then the 401 in Toronto is the 40 in Montreal. The 401 has 12 lanes were as the 40 only has 4.

I'd pay high road tolls any day if it meant being able to live in the best country on the planet! Small price to pay.
