Toll Hike Protest

Protest with Toll Booth Prop

2009

    In 2008 Massachusetts Turnpike authority votes to double road tolls for commuters coming from East Boston and the North Shore to help pay for mistakes made on the Big Dig. This increase unfairly distributes the burden, could crush the economy of the North Shore, and further isolates East Boston. 

I simply wanted to show law makers what it would feel like to be charged $7 dollars to go to work every day, so I went to the statehouse with my own toll booth and charged "statehouse"commuters a $7 dollar toll.
