Geography Div (Pay up subsection)

Toll Roads, Bridges and Tunnels  - -  

Long before EZ Pass was adopted in the DC area, I subscribed to it through New Jersey. We often made trips to New England and it made the trip much easier. It eventually came to the Mid-Atlantic region (as did the charges in Virginia).

Now the hassle is going to the Denver area. It's almost impossible to figure out what's free and what's not -  especially when in motion.
