MA Lawmakers Question Turnpike’s New AET Rates and Data Collection

The Milford Daily News reports, “State Sen. Karen Spilka (D-Ashland) is taking the lead in questioning the rates and privacy of the Mass. Pike’s new All Electronic Tolling System by sending a letter to state transportation officials.” [Link added.] The letter (a copy is embedded in the article) is co-signed by ten other senators. Spilka writes, “[S]ome drivers will see increases while others will see decreases depending on where they enter and exit the turnpike. As you know, the Legislature has long advocated for toll equity and we are deeply concerned about the impact of any toll increases either overall or individually on our constituents.”
