New Group Combating Tolls on Existing Interstates

The Alliance for Toll-Free Interstates (ATFI), a newly formed group supported by NATSO, has begun aggressively recruiting members and educating the public about the negative consequences of tolling existing interstates. As Congress, state, and local governments struggle to find money to fund transportation infrastructure projects, many elected officials are turning to the idea of placing tolls on existing interstates to generate more revenue for roads. 

The threat of tolling existing interstates could adversely affect all industries, businesses and individuals who rely on the unrestricted flow of goods and hurt people who depend on the interstate system for their livelihood. A system of toll-free interstates forms the backbone of the U.S. economy and ATFI is building a broad coalition of large and small businesses as well as individuals who rely on the most extensive transportation infrastructure network in the world. The Alliance is engaging in a public awareness campaign to ensure that no state is permitted to place tolls on existing interstate lanes.
