Monday letters: Toll roads trump higher gas tax

Gas tax ILLUS.jpg


— What we need are toll bridges rather than raising gas taxes as Richard C. Johnson suggested in his Nov. 26 letter (“Raise gas tax to fix roads”).

My job requires traveling, and I seem to see more out-of-state tags than in-state — Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Florida.

Toll bridges would help the people of our state, most of whom cannot afford another penny tax on anything.
