Toll Hikes Again in New Jersey and New York and Will be Until 2015.

All East Coast motorists who use the streets in New Jersey and New York, the Port Authority need more money to finish the new world trade center as soon as possible. Now that hurricane Sandy dumped over 10 feet of water in the basement, and to repair the water damages, it will cost a lot of money. We the toll road users must accept the following increases listed below:

Toll for cash paying passenger vehicles will rise from $12 to $13.
The yearly increase for cash paying passenger vehicles will skip next December 1st, 2013, buwill happen in 2014 and 2015.

Toll for E-ZPass paying vehicles will rise from $9.50 to $10.25 during peak hours and from $7.50 to $8.25 during off-peak hours.

The next yearly toll increase for E-ZPass paying two axle passenger vehicles will be on Dec. 1, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Should we give up our E-Zpass? This year they start charging E-Zpass holder a $1.00 monthly surcharge, just to have the device, that’s $12.00 per year even if you never use this device.
Well Easters, what will you all do, stop driving and take the train to where ever you want to go? This would not be a bad idea to stop driving because the earth is warming because of our vehicles according to scientists.

Should the regular users of the road be subject to higher toll charges, just because the Port Authority needs more money for a building? If you ask any of the officials of the NY/NJ/PA the question on the issue of raising the toll to feed the budget of building the world trade center, I know they will deny it.

I wonder if they are increasing the tolls also as a method of keeping people from New Jersey out of New York? I don’t know if anyone ever took notice that you are able to go from New York to New Jersey without paying tolls through the tunnels? If you did not know now you know so don’t abuse it now they might change this free ride if they get another Sandy storm next year.

I have spoke to a lot of folks who use to visit New York on a regular basis, stopped doing so because the tolls too high, the gas price too high and the train tickets high.
