“I got hit with a $1 toll, then a $2 toll around Baltimore, then another $2 toll in Delaware. And later, $5.30 in New Jersey. It all feels like the same highway, but they stick up a tollbooth, call it a turnpike and then have you scrounging in between the seat cushions for loose change. I was thinking E-ZPass as I idled in Delaware, but I don’t like the man keeping track of me. I had a second cigarette and nobody complained.”
