Living here in OK is just a turnpike away from getting where ya need o go. You always have a choice.. You can take the free road or you can shave an hour or more off your trip by paying for the faster rout.
This isn’t a totally bad thing. Expecially if you have lived her you entire life… You get used to it ya know?
My problem with it all is a few times when I pull up to the toll gate and throw my change into the little bucket nothing happens. Hmmm? Maybe I didn’t count it right…So I grab some more and throw that in too.
The light stays RED. What the heck? I look over at the booth with the worker and they are working away… Not looking at me.
“HEY! I’m outta change here… I put plenty in and the light won’t turn green…Wassup”?
No answer… Just a sullan look my way and then back to work….
So…. I just drive on through anyways… DING DING DING DING. There goes the alarm… I keep driving looking for police to pull me over.
This has happened at least 3 times on different turnpikes. If they are going to have those things then perhaps they should step up the maintenance on the equipment.
I can hardly wait till the ticket comes in the mail from when they took a picture of my license tag.
