Hal Drumheller: Too-high tolls

Too-high tolls

My commute from Holly Springs to RTP would cost $1,500 per year on the new toll road. That toll is too high. It is only 18 miles. I am not alone in opting out. The DOT is running ads day and night trying to get customers for the toll road.

It is time to put good Republican ideals to work here. Cut the toll in half. Watch the revenue skyrocket. Plus the DOT will save all of its advertising money.
