To: Tolerance Sucks Rocks

I avoid toll roads. Big deal, I drive 10 extra minutes. It’s the principle.

If Texas would deport all the illegals, we wouldn’t need new roads built.

“I avoid toll roads. Big deal, I drive 10 extra minutes. It’s the principle.”


The only toll road that I’ve ever used here in TX is SH 130, which allows me to bypass Austin (ALWAYS a good thing, from multiple different perspectives) while legally going 85 MPH (and, by careful rationalization and observation, to go 100 without attracting much attention). Saved over an hour even a 4 AM on my last trip north...and, as a bonus, I got to tell my wife that “I have to go this fast. Everyone else is, and it is differences in speed that cause accidents.” :>)

But otherwise, yeah, I avoid toll roads like the plague. I paid enough tolls in the NY/NJ area to last a couple of lifetimes, and a good part of that money goes to corrupt politicians, unions and the mob (but I repeat myself).

Where I live and work, it's a difference of 40 minutes (not 40 minutes, but an ADDITIONAL 40 minutes).

That almost 1.5 hours a day is worth the $3k a year for me to spend with my family each day.
