From Larry Higgs at nj.com: Garden State Parkway to go all E-ZPass, while paying cash may remain an option on the N.J. Turnpike

Pretty terrible headline, but the gist is:


--- Quote ---The New Jersey Turnpike Authority, which runs both highways, followed the lead of the Atlantic City Expressway, after the Turnpike board voted unanimously Tuesday to award a $914 million contract to bring all-electronic, cashless toll collection to the toll roads.

The board of commissioners awarded a contract to TransCore, LP of Nashville to design install, maintain and run an all-electronic toll collection system for eight years.

There were mentions in their ten year plan that AET was in the works. Contract is very expensive, but I guess they plan to do all new infrastructure for this. We'll have to see what comes of it once more details emerge.

Here is the thing. Your collecting tolls to pay off bonds.  Then add more money to the debt. 

Why not let the residents who live in the state decide? Put it on the ballot and let NJ vote on it?

Since when are public authorities accountable to the public?
