The Tolls And Trolls Of The Columbia River Crossing
Sounds like another case of government gone wild. Citizens getting tolled for the Columbia River Crossing years before the bridge has even been built. I've been mad as hell about this bridge for a long time now. Senator Don Benton from Washington told me that tolling isn't all bad, but I couldn't disagree more in this particular case. The public is being ripped off and the people that it does benefit aren't being held accountable for their share.
For those that don't remember, Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt ran against tolling on the bridges. Now Washington has said that the tolling will be on the bridges, but Senator Benton doesn't believe that the Mayor will help. In fact, Senator Benton says Mayor Leavitt flat out LIED about it to get elected.
