Should different types of vehicles pay different prices at tolls? Why/why not?

Asked by: Adam2
  • Yes yes yes

    A: The maintenance, operation and security of the Ohio Turnpike are funded almost exclusively through tolls – not taxes. Your taxes pay for other roads and interstates, but not the Turnpike. What’s more, the Ohio Turnpike receives no federal funding and only a small portion of state tax ($0.05 per gallon from gasoline purchased only at service stations on the Turnpike). This small portion of state tax money is specifically allocated to the maintenance and repair of bridges and overpasses that are state routes.
