Thrurway Tolls are a ripoff

The Thruway tolls are a total ripoff and the roads are not maintained. They should add additional lanes to busy areas but they don't or won't. They patch up roads instead of repaving them. Why do our tolls pay for the upkeep of the canal?

The tolls were supposed to be used to pay for debt service. Well, 50 years later the debt is retired and people get charged more and more to ride on a road that needs to be massively reconstructed every year.

While other states somehow avoid tolls.

The highway is mismanaged anyway thanks to that wop in Albany who's got all his guinea buddies running it. Hey wait till Cuomo finishes the tappan zee. Ya think tolls are high now? You ain't seen nothing yet!
