Cook On Concord
The hoopla surrounding the implementation of E-ZPass in New Hampshire has been an interesting sideshow. The fact is that by offering a large discount to jump-start the system, the state did a good job of weaning us token addicts from them in favor of the convenience of the new system. It is convenient, and soon it will be the only way to get a discount at New Hampshire toll booths, when tokens are no longer sold and then no longer accepted. Now, if people in the Hooksett line would realize that it is the middle lane only where transponders can be used, and the state would put a dual system in the exact change lanes as well as those staffed by toll-takers, everything would be perfect! It’s nice to live in a state where the implementation of this system is one of the big issues politicians can find reason to debate, isn’t it?
