Toll booth idea is bad for North Carolina
Fayetteville Observer Letters to the Editor
Recently, a writer suggested putting toll booths on North Carolina roads at the state lines.
I am a traveler who’s been abused by New York and New Jersey toll roads. I can understand the revenge motive. An attempt to get back at fellow travelers from neighboring states is not just bad neighbors; it is a bad idea for all of us.
The best revenge is living well. North Carolina is at its best when it takes the high road, serving as a shining example of how highways should be maintained.
Keep North Carolina roads free of toll-booth blight.
