    Great! My only experience with our New Texas toll road was a disaster. We paid at the stops every few miles, then got another bill in the mail being we used one toll roads on ramp without knowing ( was not clearly marked), and had to pay another $30+ so please, take the North USA’s pay crap back out of Texas. It so doesn’t work for us.

    Um, freeways and tollways are two completely things. One is free. The other isn’t. I’ll leave it to the reader to determine the difference.
