Letter: Tollway drivers should stand together

By on September 1, 2011

For over 50 years, we have had opportunities to get rid of having to pay a toll/tax to use Illinois highways, but we didn’t take action.

Now that the toll/tax is going up by as much as 85 percent in January, you have gotten mad. The question is, are you mad enough? You might think that it’s too late, but it’s not. If you can get a few fighting tollway drivers together, there are thousands of us that will join you.

Gov. Pat Quinn and our elected state senators and representatives all understand the power of numbers (votes). Now is the time for tollway drivers to stand together and be counted.
