I support it simply because it MAY keep the state from raising taxes any more and also the fact that I have been paying for use of the Coleman Bridge in Gloucester for 12 years now. The money from the tolls go into the VDOT account and that is where they get the money to fix all the roads. Even though I would like to see them spend more of the money in Gloucester county. I know everyone is upset about the traffic that it is going to cause, well welcome to the world of toll paying.
