If anyone has ever had to travel the innards of Florida and drive north, they've probably been on the Florida Turnpike. The northern stretch of the road cuts through a beautiful piece of Florida countryside, full of rolling hills and such... but there is a dark side to the drive. Every 50 miles or so, the ride is broken up by a toll. Yes, a toll to get on the Turnpike, a toll to exit, a toll in the middle of nowhere and so forth.
To get the tolls, there must be toll takers - people who are willing to stand there all day and harass travelers for money. Well, I know I've personally given thousands to these people over the years. Now I feel duped after reading this article. Seems that the FDOT has made a fortune with their relatively new program of 'detaining' people who pay with larger bills. This is all part of the system to bring in a digital currency. This is an interesting story, a good read and news video to check out when one has time.
