Toll Booths

Dear Daytonian,

We don't have these anywhere near Dayton, and not only do they slow down your trip on the open road, but have you pay a quarter, a dollar or more to continue your journey for a few more miles.  Certain exits accept only exact change, which if you don't have will result in the extra annoyance of paying later online or via postal mail.  You can avoid some of this headache by prepaying for an electronic pass and only having to slow down as you continue to pay for a road that was paid off years ago.  But when did government ever stop taxing you after they got that ball rolling?
