We went north for a few days. Coming back, we got on I-75 to go through Atlanta (and I won't go on and on about how I hate hate hate going through Atlanta!) and found they had changed a lane to a toll lane. Oh, they're calling it an express lane, but you have to buy a Peach Pass to use it. We saw maybe two cars using it as we went on down, using the regular no-charge lanes.
I'm wondering how they're getting away with charging fees on a lane of a road that's a federal interstate highway. Or am I hopelessly provincial and out of touch with the times?
Here are some photos I took. Sorry they're fuzzy but we were driving.
The sign telling you it's coming up, with the fee on the right to the first and second road exits listed:
The sign on the right tells you when the express lane starts:
And here is the sign over the lane, saying Peach Pass ONLY:
There are more signs, naturally, threatening the usual stuff when cars without the Peach Pass use this 'special' lane.
Well, we taxpayers paid for the lane once. I don't think we'll be buying a Peach Pass anytime soon!
