MA Governor Talks Up Turnpike’s AET Transition, Though “Most Drivers” Remain Opposed to More Tolls

WWLP reports, “Governor Charlie Baker is calling the Mass Pike’s transition to all electronic tolling a success. Now people are questioning whether it should or would be implemented on other highways in the state.” The report adds that the governor “has expressed pride in the transition to the all-electronic gantry system without causing gridlock” and notes that “while more tolls have been discussed over the years most drivers remain opposed.” (The station’s video report concludes with a reference to an online poll that found that 93% of the respondents were opposed to additional tolls.)
