Truck drivers and owner operators of big rigs in New York are up in arms and have been for a while over a potential rate hike in Thruway tolls for tucks. The Thruway Authority has proposed a rate hike of 45 cents which in my mind is ridiculous. Governor Cuomo thinks that is a big jump too and has asked the Thruway Authority to find a way to make the hike smaller and give businesses and truckers a break they really need in a very tough business climate. Hopefully they will listen. More on the story here.
