Roughly 30% of Connecticut traffic on both I-84 and I-95 is from out of state.
Many of those vehicles don't stop anywhere in Connecticut and thus don't spend one thin dime here.
Issuing an annual Connecticut EZ-Pass for let's say $100 would protect our citizens from paying too much, and we could even give a 110% credit for that purchase on our Connecticut Income Tax.
The out of state revenue at $10 per-vehicle (border to border) would generate in excess of $500 Million a year; and that's without figuring in what we could generate on the Merritt/Wilbur Cross Parkway.
Early toll booths are a thing of the past.
This must have created terrible traffic back-ups.
The early EZ-Pass toll booth is now stale.
Believe it or not, this is a toll booth!
