Re: Bridges

Not true.
We have some toll roads where you pay tolls depending on the distance
traveled.  The two ways of paying are:  periodical toll booths, where you
drop in change and the other is you get a ticket when you get on the road
then you pay when you get off.

There are some bridges that charge a toll to cross it.  I've never heard of
paying toll to get on then paying another to get off.
