    Not everyone has an EZ Pass subscription, how will this new technology collect from those who don't? Simple, they'll put in cash lanes and the result will be congestion, accidents and a return to the good old days when fatalities at tool booths were just another one of the unexpected consequences along with increased pollution from idling engines. The idea that people will not alter routes to escape increased toll rates is foolish. I-95 is not a thruway but a super street. It has so many exists and entrances so close together that avoiding tools will be a hobby. I'm old enough to remember people dodging the tolls all the way through CT, and they were only 25cents back then. Adding tolls will not only endanger lives on the highway but off as well when people get off them and rush through city streets to make up for the lost minutes. Not a good idea.
