Pocono Commuter says: Say NO to TOLL on I-80!
The Board of Directors of Pocono Commuter, Inc. are unanimously against the legislation to implement tolls on I-80 and request that this plan be dropped immediately. We firmly believe that this is not in the best interests of the residents of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We do understand that money must be allocated to engineer the upgrades and repairs to our infrastructure, however this is not the right way to go about doing it. We would also request that an explanation be made to the residents of PA to explain how our roads and bridges were allowed to reach the condition they are in today. We would also request a plan to be developed moving forward to make sure that after our roads and bridges are repaired they are never permitted to deteriorate to this point again where such drastic ideas as implementing tolls on I-80 would be entertained to overcome what we perceive to be a serious lapse of oversight.
