Move over New Jersey, Florida is now the king. Of tollbooths that is...

Ok, I have said it. When did Florida become the tollbooth state ? I mean I knew New Jersey was bad with a tollbooth every 5 miles but come on Florida. Today I traveled down to the wonderful state of Florida. It was a welcome relief to the cool weather back in Maryland. I have been here before and knew about the tolls on the "BeeLine". But I had to travel to a customer site today. Tolls on the BeeLine (528), 417 an 408. I got hit with 2 tollbooths on each road. Count em, 6 all together. On direction. Now if I had travel hundreds of miles I would not have been shocked. But I traveled 14 miles. One tollbooth every 2-3 miles. 6 each way or 12 tollbooths today period.
Some day I could envision myself moving here. But I am going to have to keep Fastpass. At a minimum get my social security paid in quarters. So Florida you are now crowned the tollbooth state. Wear it well.
