LETTERS: Tolls make sense

LETTERS: Tolls make sense

Right ideas on tolls


This is in response to the letter on June 26, "Hidden cost of driving" written by Jackie Kaiko.

I am 150 percent with you on the issue of the tolls that should be going up in this state. Does anybody look at the states surrounding this state?  They all have tolls, which when we, CT drivers, drive into one of these states, we help them with their transportation costs. 

It just makes sense to put up tolls in this state, so those that come from other states help us lower the taxes that we are now paying, which is 100 percent coming out of our pockets. Would it not make sense to have people driving through our state pay 40 percent in taxes on our roads, just like Jackie said?
