Plus, they seem to be customer oriented, very helpful.
Quite a few states use the same system for collecting tolls. The result is you can buy a little box, load it with some $$ and NOT have to stop to pay a toll. For me, stopping, neutral, kick stand down, take gloves off, get out dollar bills to pay toll, receive change, gloves back on, kick stand up, back into gear and then back on my way is a PAIN!!
One tear I left MA during the third week in May and rode to NM. Most of the trip was pleasant wx, flowers blooming on the Blue ridge Parkway, not much traffic because kids were still in public schools, NM and later AZ were in 90s and higher here during middle of June. at that time there weren't that many thunderstorms, same for raining.
Once schools close you get an increase ion traffic as famlies go on vacatrion.
