In a way, their practice taught me a lesson also to keep the change ready. At the toll gates in the US, one can throw the requisite coins in a big funnel and the gates open.I used to keep the change always and gave up that habit on returning. So, the silver lining is, each bad thing brings some good habits as well.
I found the Bombay toll gates to be too few for the amount of traffic. And always there are very big queues. Space may have been a constraint in land acquisition. You see a sea change between Maharashtra and Karnataka on the time you spend in toll gates. Shivpur, Kini and Taswade toll plazas easily take 15-20 minutes altogether. You cross over to Karnataka and the toll gates take less than a minute.

I want people to fairly answer.
If a few vehicles cut lanes and keep moving forward then won't you also do the same ?
I have also sometimes stood for a long time and it gets very frustrating.
The Local Taxis do not pay anything as it would be too expensive for them to account for it in the customer fare.
btw The Chevrolet Dealer also has a Service Station near Mulund ? Please answer as it is important for me to know if Chevy are serviced in that area.

The tol naka referred to in the article is the one before entering Kalyan from Nasik highway. For years no one had a clue as to why a toll had to be paid to enter Kalyan which till date is still a mystery.
I would request MNS to do the same at the Mulund toll naka too since that is also a big traffic stopper.

Violence doesnt solve anything. The sensible way is to join together and file an RTI and follow it up with a legal case. Citizens joining together and raising this peacefully is what would solve the problem.
Look at other countries. They are working towards improving infrastructure and here, we are still trying to fill our pockets first. Quite dissapointing actually.
