Report: NYC Toll Hike May Take Cars Off Road
NEW YORK (CBS 2 / 1010 WINS / WCBS 880) — A report out Monday said hundreds of thousands of City drivers might park their cars for good if a proposed bridge and tunnel toll hike goes through.
The AAA told the Daily News that an estimated 180,000 drivers could decide not to renew their registrations if tolls go up next year.
That’s based on a registration dip after a previous toll hike.
The MTA board was expected to vote on those toll hikes on Wednesday.
E-ZPass users face a 5-percent hike while drivers paying cash would pay 18-percent more.
