    just this week eliminated all toll takers. If you don't have "fasttrac" so the computer can deduct the toll from your account, they take a photo of your license plate and send you a bill. I will be testing this system in one hour. Let's see if they know where license  DLY KOS lives.

    Ceiling Cat rules....srsly.

      Riding over the Benicia Bridge, you don't even have to slow down: they have two lanes where pass holders can just drive through at full speed (65+). If your transponder's not active for whatever reason, they just deduct it from your credit or debit card.

      I'm not pleased at all about the GG Bridge toll takers losing their jobs, though. That's a very raw deal, to close all tollbooths entirely and go full electronic collection.
