I hate: Virginia...

Stupid $%$#%$# VA....and there was a cop out there this morning with a laser gun....if youre gonna charge me even more to drive on the toll road, then I damn well better be able to drive 85!!!!!!!!!! (no I didn't get pulled over)

Prices on the Dulles Toll Road will rise this spring to help pay for a $4 billion Metrorail extension paralleling the roadway, Virginia's transportation leaders decided today.

The action by the Commonwealth Transportation Board will boost tolls to 75 cents at the main gate and 50 cents at the other gates.

The hike is set to go into effect May 22.

With the toll hike and other sources already in hand to cover about half the cost of the project's first phase from West Falls Church to the eastern edge of Reston, leaders of the rail project will now seek federal money for the remainder.

One talk show host on WMAL this morning was complaining about property taxes and government spending in Fairfax County and he said "I am amazed at how people in the DC area (and by that I assume he includes the neighboring counties in MD and VA) pay so much $ and get back so little in return, and allow the politicians to get away with it."
