What's eve worse is when you got hru the tollgates, the changers don't work. I threw the required amount in twice. It cost me 3.00 to go from Tulsa to Coweta and it never registered my money. Now I'm waiting for my $25.00 fine so it will cost me $28.00. It would be nice if they kept their equipment working. You can bet the camera that took a picture of my tags was working.

Oklahoma Turnpikes are pathetic. The roads are not good; rest areas (NEEDED FOR SAFETY) have been removed (WASTE OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS); service plazas are built to benefit privately owned/corporate businesses; bondholders are receiving about 5% return each year on their investment; the State of Oklahoma arranged a "convenient" covenant that requires the Turnpike Authority to keep a certain amount of money in its accounts at ALL times or else the bondholders can take OVER toll collecting operations. There is no other state that has made a convenant allowing bondholders to take over the turnpikes. The whole situation is a scam on the people of Oklahoma.

When the Turner Turnpike was built, the people were told that toll collections would pay for the highway, and then it would become a FREE highway. We need to put the turnpikes under the control of ODOT and elimate the tolls.

I wonder how many people know that the State of Oklahomas has authorized the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority to build up to 25 MORE TURNPIKES? This craziness must stop, and the people of Oklahoma better wake up and pay attention to the situation.
