Truthfully the tolls really help maintain the roads to a certain extent.... without them people who travels through or even lives in West Virginia will be paying more higher taxes..... probably taxes on certain other goods would go up..

how about taking the tolls off the turnpike and putting them on the main route going into wheeling. since they seem to be all for tolls up there. let northern wv pay tolls for a while. southern wv has been paying for 50 years. it's your turn.

I was talking to a trucker the other day and he said the only reason his company routed them thru Wva. was so their drivers could take a good shytte.

Let's put a toll booth up every 35 miles on every frigging Interstate Highway in the State. Charge $2.00 per car for everybody in the State. Think of the money the State would have and the jobs this would create. Let the fat cats in Charleston pay to travel to Morgantown to watch the Mountaineers play and see how they like it.
