EIGHTY-TWO (82) TOLL GANTRIES WILL

  • INCREASE THE COST OF EVERY ITEM TRANSPORTED INTO CONNECTICUT

  • INCREASE THE COST OF DOING BUSINESS IN THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT

  • INCREASE TRAFFIC ON SECONDARY ROADS, WHICH WILL TRANSLATE INTO INCREASED WEAR/TEAR = HIGHER PROPERTY TAXES AND INCREASED POLLUTION.

  • INCREASE THE SIZE OF GOVERNMENT BY CREATING A TOLL AUTHORITY

We believe that the drivers of Connecticut already pay our fair share of taxes for transportation. Until we see that the General Assembly is serious about fixing Connecticut’s fiscal crisis and addiction to spending, we say NOT ONE PENNY MORE.

DO YOU HAVE AN EXTRA $600-$1,000 IN YOUR WALLET?


THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT ALREADY COLLECTS OVER

$1 BILLION FROM DRIVERS FOR TRANSPORTATION.
