New York Thruway to increase tolls in 2009 and 2010

The New York Thruway Authority Board of Directors voted to increase tolls by 5 percent in 2009 and an additional 5 percent in 2010 despite political pressure and the urging of the state comptroller to hold off on the increases. The vote on Friday, April 25, came just a few months after the board voted to increase tolls by 10 percent beginning Jan. 1, 2008.

Yea, dont think so. To many people have to run down town. They want people to use more mass transit. Then after that they'll raise the prices on that as well. It's needs to be cleaned up a bit more before I'll touch it. Cabby is about as far as I'll go, and you gotta watch them cats too. Rob you blind if your not carefull

i have only been to the city once. it was interesting to say the least and there was some things i liked but i have no desire to go back. too many people for my taste and the crowded conditions are just too much for me.

Thats why I love it. Can't live down there, F that. But work a few days a week oh ya, fo sure. If your in a hurry forget it, if you have all the time in the world it's great. I have had some of my best laughs down there wasting time. From things people say or do, down to the down right dumb. A few years ago I was parked HALF on the side walk and half in the street. The truck I was driving had a lift gate so it was out.... I came out of the elevator and heard CRASH.... got out side and some lady drove her benz into the lift gate. Cut the whole passenger side open like a tuna can. After I seen no one was hurt I hit the floor laughing. Then to make it better she tried to tell the cop the truck pulled in front of her. The cop said Mam, the I've seen this truck here for 3 hours now, and for 3 hours he had cones out, hazards on and no one has been inside this truck, it didn't move. Not to mention I saw you pass the taxi over there unloading.
now that was priceless.... Oh and when we had a contract with MTV, A&E and Discover..... damn son... some stories you would never believe. 8 hrs in Times Square.

the A.T.L. is it's own different world. i have been to every major city around and to me atlanta is the worse. the traffic is aweful and the racsim is un bearable. it is a screw you attitude there and i am glad i am not there and will never go back to stay. the money does not equal the cost of living. suwanne/buford is expensive but nice. and it's the home of the falcons training camp. downtown traffic is just ugly. it's nice to visit but even nicer to leave.
