No tolls if you live within 10 miles? It’s possible says a Connecticut Lawmaker

Should you pay a highway toll if the gantry is near your house?

Sen. Will Haskell, D-Westport, floated an idea during an interview Thursday that he said would put the burden of tolls on the backs of trucking companies and non-resident drivers.

In Haskell’s mind, a driver wouldn’t have to pay a toll if the gantry is within, for example, 10 miles of where an E-ZPass is registered.

“If you’re using 95 as a local road to get to stop and shop you shouldn’t have to pay,” Haskell said.
