In most states, these are known as roadblocks, and those of us who live in civilized places wonder what in the world inspired you to drop them across interstates in the first place. Were you afraid that someone might actually get somewhere? Aside from the counter-productivity of the concept, they are a real hazard for motorcyclists. First of all, as you approach, drivers are frantically changing lanes to get in the line that is shortest, doesn't need exact change, reads their transponders, or accepts Iranian T-bills as payment. The fact that there might be a motorcycle trying to negotiate the melee never occurs to most of them. Because the toll (40 cents) has been carefully chosen to require the maximum number of different coins, chances of having exact change is low. So you have to use the manual lane with the trucks. You have to stop, remove your gloves, dig out money (awkward at best, while straddling a big motorcycle) and present it. As the attendant gets change, you notice that the semi behind you is creeping ever closer. You get the change from your $20 back and while trying to stash the cash, you drop some of it. Leaning to get it, with the truck edging toward your taillight, you discover that there is no program to remove the oil that collects in the toll area and that rain can't wash it off because a roof covers it. You might discover this by dropping your bike right now or perhaps when, after taking so long to negotiate the toll process, you decide to show how hard a motorcycle can accelerate and you get stone sideways about two feet from where you stopped. Come along as my passenger; I think this will impress you even more than it does those watching. The idea of an additional half-cent tax on fuel will suddenly make a lot more sense than tollbooths.
