Your old stamps may not have enough value for the new rates, but you can still use them as long as you add the proper additional postage.
In the case of the tolls, if I am not mistaken, the state refused to accept the older tokens. That is a big difference from the USPS.
If the post office refused to accept certain stamps after raising rates, there would be an uproar from every single town and city in this country.
That's right and the uproar would be justified. In this case they don't care about uproar, because only a few were going to be holding these tokens. This is the same as rejecting money after a certain date.
No one's going to care about folks like this guy, so the homos at the toll authority and their phoney court, don't expect pitchforks and torches. As far as the cop goes, he's in on it too as their thug enforcer.
