Campaign to Improve Safety within Toll Plazas
The New Hampshire State Police has begun a campaign to improve safety within the State's toll plazas. On Friday March 20, 2009, in a twenty-minute period, members from Troop B stopped and summonsed seventeen drivers who went through a booth at the Bedford Toll Plaza, at speeds well in excess of thirty-five miles-per-hour.
This program will be run statewide and more information will follow from both the State Police and the New Hampshire Department of Transportation.
Within the last several months speeds within the plazas have become unreasonable and unsafe to members of the motoring public and toll employees. We have also begun to see an increase in accidents and road rage type incidents.
Also Toll Evasion Details will continue.
