Personally, I'd rather my tax dollars be spent on making roads, not on making change. Check out this list of some of the things your money pays for, plus a list of some of the salaries.
Tolls vs. Safety - The New Jersey Highway Authority touts the Parkway's safety record as "one of the best in the nation". But given the fact that the highest percentage of the accidents occur near the toll plazas (see graph below), we think the Parkway would be safer without tolls.
