I think this encompasses the interstate toll road movement.
They will NOT eliminate gas tax; what they will "add" and they will call it the new "USER FEES"

User fees are the new tax folks. you see it everywhere

I had a recent experience with Maryland... As I drove north on I-95, I passed through a tunnel in Baltimore which read both my MH and toad and charged me $2 each (posted fee is $3). An hour later, (I think its is called the JFK highway toll) the toll fee was to be $5. each. The toll did not read my toad and charged me for a four axle truck @ $23. That is $13 more. When I called Md EA Pass, they told me that that is the correct fee for a 4 axle vehicle and that is the way all RVs with a toad are to be charged. I guess I will have to slow down more to let the toll read both transponders. I am afraid to complain about it-- they may want to double my fee for the tunnel from $2($4 total) to $10 or $15. Has anyone else experience this? If so, what did you do about it? Thanks.

Within Florida, the tag reading devices are only in Broward County (Ft. Lauderdale) and South. Once out of Florida, I remove my transponder and just go to the toll booth that accepts cash. I remove the transponder as I have been lazy and paid cash and the transponder beeped indicating $s had been deducted from my account!
The SunPass works in more places than Broward County and south. It works on Florida's Turnpike, the toll facilities in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties, toll facilities in the Tampa Bay area, and most toll bridges throughout the state. It can also be used for parking payments at several airports in the state. Unfortunately, it is only valid in Florida, and though it is compatible with systems elsewhere, it is not valid anywhere else.

The Maryland toll authorities are correct. Since your toad is not being driven, it counts as a trailer. At the toll bridge near my home, FLDOT charges $3 for a car or two axle truck, and $3 for EACH ADDITIONAL AXLE. So a car costs $3, a car pulling a two axle trailer costs $9.

If you want a cheaper toll, disconnect the toad and drive it through.
