Letters: Pay up Golden Ears tolls

I cannot believe the letter about the bridge tolls and giving people a fair chance to pay them back.

I cannot believe the letter about the bridge tolls and giving people a fair chance to pay them back.

Of course you should deny people the right to drive if they don’t pay their tolls. How else will they get their money?

Why would anyone pay tolls if there are no consequences?

These people have had the option of paying down their debt by receiving their weekly bills, anywhere from $3.05 to $4.30 each time they cross.  It is their fault that the debt has gotten so ridiculously out of control.

These same people choose not to pay it.

People can be so ignorant. They know when they cross that bridge that they will be billed, so why, if they aren’t even going to pay it, don’t these people drive around and put the money towards gas instead?

Either pay up or lose the right to drive across the bridge and incur even more debt.
