I hate seeing local governments taking advantage of people.
This one really got under my skin. The Garden State Parkway in NJ has toll plazas that only accept 50 cents in exact change... or E-ZPass. If you don't have EZPass, or exact change... you end up with a $55 fine. That's just plain wrong.
What bugs me most is that there is no warning. The moment you reach the toll plaza, you are given a choice of 2 types of lanes, an exact change lane with a bin that only accepts coins, or lanes that only accept E-ZPass.
Once you reach the toll plaza, you are forced to make a decision. You can continue through the toll plaza and get a violation in the mail for $55, or you can risk getting a moving violation by trying to back out of the ramp or make an illegal U-Turn.
