I know some of you don’t like this kind of price differential strategy in tolling, where people who have EZ-Pass pay less than people in the cash lanes.
But you really just need to get an EZ-Pass and get over it. The state is trying to nudge you to get the EZ-Pass. If you do what they want, you’ll save money, and you’ll save time. There is no downside to this.
The time costs of everybody wasting time in cash lanes add up to a surprising amount of drag on the economy. All that time spent waiting around in traffic is just dead time we can’t spend working or having fun, and time is one thing they can’t make more of. You are making Pennsylvania poorer if you don’t have EZ-Pass.
