MORE OUTRAGE: The rich get FREE toll tags in Dallas!

Friday, August 31st, 2007

View the news report here. If this doesn’t demonstrate that these toll plans are special lanes for the rich and powerful, then I don’t know what does.

Obituary: Trans Texas Corridor By Roy Bragg Express News August 31, 2007 The Trans-Texas Corridor, a plan so flimsy and badly conceived that it attained the believability of an urban legend, died of its own greed and hubris Thursday.

TxDOT plan would convert some interstates to toll roads

Friday, August 31st, 2007

Link to articles here and here. Well, we ought to feel vindicated as news of what we’ve all known since Ric Williamson uttered this now famous quote, “In your lifetime, most existing roads will have tolls” (Houston Chronicle, Oct. 11, 2004)…the plan is to turn all our existing roads into toll roads and DOUBLE TAX, […]

Feds approve toll project on US 281

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007
