Toll roads that don't have toll booths

121toll Kimberly Norton of Fort Worth offers this observation:
I had traveled TX 121 near Denton Tapp Road for over 20 years.  Recently they made that part of the road a toll.  It would be OK if you knew it was a toll (e.g. the paying booths) but it's a video toll.  They take a photo of your license plate and send you a bill.  I hope this is not starting a new trend in the DFW area!

That is the future of DFW toll roads. there is an article on ntta.org that tells the story.
I think it's great. No more bozos hunting for change, or concrete barriers in between lanes of traffic. Just cruise on through. BTW, if you get a toll tag, the toll is 20% cheaper.

It is great as long as you don't mind the $1 service charge they tack on for all the trouble they have to go through to mail you a bill.

These are the absolute pits if you are in a rental car! The rental companies want to charge you $10 a day for a TTAG, to use ONCE on a road that is going to cost .60 to travel on! Talk about a RIP OFF! Wonderful state of Texas - at it again! I'm just trying to figure out how in the world to AVOID it - since I don't know how I ended up on it in the first place!
