Florida Toll Bridge Installs Gates to Help “Distracted” Drivers

PalmCoastObserver.com reports on a Hammock Dunes Bridge toll plaza upgrade: “bars that raise and lower with each car.” According to the article, “The need for the bars stems from motorists who don’t stop for the toll booths. ‘Now, we won’t have people plowing through,’ [bridge manager William Kowaloff] said. Kowaloff said even residents who use the express card program have been seen, distracted and going through without stopping.”
