RIDOT Continuing To Rake In Truck Toll Revenue

posted by NewsRadio 920 -WHJJ - 

(Providence, RI)  --  The Rhode Island Department of Transportation says revenue from a new truck-tolling system is continuing to exceed expectations.  From July 11th to August 10th, the second month of tolling, RIDOT says just over 200-thousand trucks passed through the South County gantries on I-95, almost 24-thousand more than projected, resulting in about 665-thousand dollars in assessed charges.  In addition to suing over the tolls, the trucking industry has suggested that truckers would drive around Rhode Island to avoid the payments.
