It will use the EZ Pass system. You don't even have to slow down now. If
you don't have a pass, they bill you from the plate number on the car. They
are talking about 8 border locations on 95, 91, 84, 395 and a few others.
I've not read any details, but I'm sure they will be well marked. The
system is in use on the Garden State Parkway and on Rt 95 going through New
I don't mind paying a fair tax or toll since I do use the roads. What I do
mind is that many of us in border towns will be paying either nothing,
because we use the side roads, or a much larger portion since we cross the
border frequently. The lawmakers that travel from home to Hartford will pay
nothing, but I would have to pay about $1200 a year.
The toll will be in one direction only so I can cross coming home, but will
have to circumvent on the way to work or for some shopping and doctor
visits. The side roads will be much more congested with the toll dodgers
and they are not built for the heavy traffic.
BTW, near work, gas is $3.59 and pumped for you. Near home it is 3.97 today
for self service.
I'd like to see a Constitutional Amendment to the effect that a person
may be required to file with the government one form each year,
consisting of a single page, and may be required to file no other form,
and that if government tells him he must file more than one form he gets
to decide which form to file.
Also that the sum total of all taxes and other mandatory transfers of
funds to the government or to government sponsored programs, direct and
indirect paid by any person in any given year may not exceed ten percent
of his income and if the government provides him with bills for more
than that amount he gets to decide which to pay up to the 10 percent
And that no person may be arrested, detained, annoyed, spoken to
harshly, glared at, or otherwise in any manner be pestered by the
government for lack of any government-mandated form, certificate,
license, unpaid tax or anything else having to do with government
requirements as long as he has (a) filed his one form and (b) paid his
10 percent tax.
And that "deceased violated the above paragraph" be an affirmative
defense in cases involving homicide of a government official.
Dunno how McFeelys is set up, but I do know that FedEx will (for a
price) store your inventory in their warehouse, which might not be near
where your business office is located. I suspect that UPS will do the
