New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced toll gates on New York City’s bridges and tunnels will be eliminated next year, CBS NEW YORK reports.
Starting in January, tollbooths on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s seven bridges and two tunnels will be replaced with an electronic scanning system. The 100 billion transportation overhaul will be the largest single investment in infrastructure in the state’s history.
Electronic devices will collect money from drivers through E-ZPass, or a bill will be sent in the mail for those who pay with cash. The cameras can also snap photos of license plates at any speed and in any weather.
