KXAN-TV News (Austin) reports that a Texas man who was charged with $150 in toll fees “which ballooned into a $4,000 lawsuit which he lost” has gathered more than 10,000 signatures for an online petition that, among other things, calls for a single, statewide tolling agency and no new toll roads. The report adds that “the executive director of the Texas Department of Transportation has already agreed to meet” with the petition author, who is also seeking appointments with state lawmakers.
