 Toll busters!

Transportation Secretary Aubrey Layne has said the Midtown expansion project is a done deal. While Governor McAuliffe is committed to finding more state money to reduce the cost of the tolls, this project will continue to damage us in the future, and the PPTA is more alive than ever. If you feel strongly about the Midtown tolls and the prospect of more tolls, let your state leaders know.

  1. I agree. This is a Tidewater problem. This is a serious problem when many of us are already scraping up money for gas and basic supplies. And now they want to put a toll. In other words tax us to benifit other areas. Playing Politics benefit the politians not the People!

  2. i thought this website led to the petition. i have signed it and know that it can be reached at a tinyurl site. however, that’s a really hard address for people to remember standing in the grocery store chatting! can’t you link to the petition?

  3. I am writing to state my opinion on implementation of tolls in the Hampton Roads vicinity. Specifically, how it impacts on the Town of Portsmouth. The projected toll would cost me a $1000/year. I make a reasonable income, and still this cost/tax would cause an adverse impact on me. And for the population of Portsmouth being of lower incomes and highly ethnic, this would be even worse. Surprisingly, in the Environmental document for this project it was stated under Environmental Justice review that the Tolls would not have an adverse impact on ethnic populations or ones of low income, as long as the price/toll was kept reasonable. Unfortunately, this Financial Impact is Not Reasonable, and does not comply with the premise of Environmental Justice. The whole thing smells., ..politics and profits. We all are going in debt, and nobody wants to stop spending.

  4. I have a transportation issue that I have been attempting to get the members of the General assembly to take seriously.

    What they are doing is unconstitutional and is a federal crime, but they refuse to approach attorney general Ken Cuccinelli for his comments because they know that I am correct.

    As an individual my voice as a concerned citizen has been quashed. But as an organization you may have better luck approaching these legislators and forcing a change.

    My argument is as follows: the Virginia State Vehicle Safety Inspection Mandate is unconstitutional because it discriminates against all of Virginia’s vehicle owners by requiring that they submit to having their vehicles certified annually or lose the privilege of driving on the very roads that their tax dollars are used to maintain while allowing vehicles that are not registered in Virginia to enter our boarders and travel upon the very same roads unencumbered by this mandate, potentially putting the lives of the individuals that submitted to the mandate and proved compliance in peril from vehicles that are not regulated and may be deemed unsafe based on the same Virginia Vehicle Safety Inspection criteria.
