For Whom The Toll Booth Tolls

The most dangerous place on the road is a toll booth, according to the National Transporation Safety Board. "Toll plazas account for 49 percent of all interstate accidents in Illinois and 38 percent in New Jersey."

Not surprisingly, Colorado Governor Owens is a big fan of toll roads, and by implication, toll booths. Fortunately, the Colorado General Assembly is not.

Perhaps the saying "Live Free Or Die" can be amended to read, "Drive On The Freeway Or Die."
